WE LOVE BOOKSTORES | John Scalzi, Sarah Gailey and Michael Zapata for Dark Carnival

Hosted/Organized by: We Love Bookstores

Fundraising Goal: $2000

It’s a tough time for local bookstores, what with the social distancing and the sheltering in place. So we’re raising funds to help local Bay Area bookstores stay in business, with a series of fundraisers. This event will feature John Scalzi, Sarah Gailey and Michael Zapata, reading and having a conversation.

John Scalzi’s latest novel is The Last Emperox. Scalzi won the 2006 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel for Redshirts, and his debut novel Old Man’s War was a finalist for Hugo Award as well.

Hugo Award Winner and Bestselling author Sarah Gailey is an internationally published writer of fiction and nonfiction. Their nonfiction has been published by Mashable and the Boston Globe, and they won a Hugo award for Best Fan Writer. Their most recent fiction credits include Vice and The Atlantic.

Michael Zapata is the author of The Lost Book of Adana Moreau. He is a founding editor of the award-winning MAKE Literary Magazine. He is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Award for Fiction; the City of Chicago DCASE Individual Artist Program award; and a Pushcart Nomination.

This event is hosted by Charlie Jane Anders, organizer of Writers With Drinks.
