Women in Horror Comics Mini Horror Book Festival @ The Framingham Library!
Saturday, November 4 @ 12:00-3:00pm
This time, we’re meeting at the lovely Framingham Public Library to celebrate Women in Horror Comics! We are thrilled to welcome horror authors Alex de Campi, Erica Henderson and Marjorie M. Liu for this day of fun and conversation! The day will include a panel discussion (which will be recorded so, if you can’t make it in person, you can watch later!), small group conversations, and a book sale/signing. It’s also a book birthday to celebrate Alex and Erica’s recent release of “Parasocial”. So, so, so exciting!
Books for the book sale will be provided by Aesop’s Fable. You can PREORDER books by any of our authors and Aesop’s will bring your books to the Fest - easy peasy and no worries that they’ll sell out!
Walk-ins are welcome, but we’re also requesting registration so we know how many chairs to have out (and you’ll receive reminders)..
Schedule of events (subject to change):
12:00-1:00pm - Panel with all authors
1:00-1:30pm - Dedicated book sale/signing
1:30-2:30 - Discussion and Q&A with the authors
