7PM. Atomic Books.
Hampden, Baltimore

Mikita Brottman is author of the new book, THIRTEEN GIRLS, and J.R. Angelella is the author of ZOMBIE: A NOVEL.

Both will be reading, discussing and signing copies of their books.

This is event is part of the Atomic Fiction Series, with hosts Kathy Flann & Benn Ray.

THIRTEEN GIRLS is a casebook of murder that plumbs the annals of violent crime, delivering thirteen bracing stories about its emotional fallout using fictionalized narrative.

“Thirteen Girls manages the improbable feat of conjuring up the full horror and emotional devastation of serial homicide by focusing exclusively on the aftermath of the crimes and those left to deal with the consequences: family members, police officers, witnesses, survivors. Known for her brilliant, provocative cultural criticism, Mikita Brottman has produced a stunning work of crime fiction–a genuine tour de force.” –Harold Schechter, author of The Serial Killer Files

In ZOMBIE, Jeremy navigates his all-boys Catholic high school with a code cobbled together from Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, Planet Terror, Zombieland and Dawn of the Dead.

“If you want to know how teenagers feel and what they say when adults aren’t around, Zombie–a funny and very authentic, well-written first novel by J. R. Angelella–should definitely be the next book you read.” —John Waters

Adult beverages will be served.
