Why should you attend?

“To say I loved Weather Woman is an understatement. Full of amazing science, and even more amazing characters, it’s the kind of book you want to press into the hands of everyone you meet because you need them to read it so you all can obsess and talk about it.” —Caroline Leavitt, author of the New York Times bestselling Pictures of You

“Like the powers of Lulu Hurst, Jessica Handler’s literary power feels like a sleight of hand. It’s impossible that a novel can be this beautiful, this haunting, and this resonant, but your eyes (and your heart) are not deceiving you. The Magnetic Girl is a gorgeous, brutal book: a strange alchemy of love, fear, fate, and hope.” —Wiley Cash, author of The Last Ballad
