Jody Gehrman Keynote Speaker for NEA Big Read
Kelly Link's short story collection Pretty Monsters has been called "an alchemical mixture of Borges, Raymond Chandler, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer" by Salon. Time describes it as "a place few writers go, a netherworld between literature and fantasy, Alice Munro and J.K. Rowling...Link finds truths there that most authors wouldn’t dare touch." Join novelist, playwright and Mendocino College professor Jody Gehrman as she leads a community discussion exploring this extraordinary collection of stories, with special emphasis on the Hugo, Nebula and Locus award winning story "The Faery Handbag."
