Holden Caulfield, Katniss Everdeen, Oscar Wao—fictional characters as unforgettable as our own family members. Join novelists E. B. Moore, Jennie Wood and Kate Racculia—and their characters—for a reading and discussion of how the authors created their own unforgettable characters, trait by trait, from first draft to final.

Want to get in on the action? Bring a character-revealing page (maximum 250 words) from your short story or novel. One lucky audience member will have their entry read aloud and discussed by our authors. The winner receives a free GrubStreet pint glass and a drink, purchased by our own Michelle Hoover—as well as possible love, wealth and fame.

The event is free. We accept donations (cash or check) for the Novel Incubator Scholarship Fund. Please make your check out to GrubStreet, and write “Novel Incubator Scholarship Fund” in the memo field. Thank you!

E.B. Moore, in her debut novel, AN UNSEEMLY WIFE, gives stunning and palpable energy to a 19th century Amish woman in her journey to find a new life.

Jennie Wood, graphic novelist, author of the FLUTTER series, brings into dazzling focus the maturation of young Peyton as he discovers his true self in her debut novel, A BOY LIKE ME.

Kate Racculia, in her second novel, BELLWEATHER RHAPSODY, casts the Bellweather Hotel in the Catskills as a central character inhabited by an ensemble of eccentrics turned sleuths as they search for clues to the fate of the missing flautist.

Sponsored by GrubStreet, Novel Incubator, Dead Darlings and Trident Booksellers and Café.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Readings begin at 7pm sharp!
