We have two great events happening for you THIS WEEK!
THIS THURSDAY, March 2, starting at 7:00 PM, Rainbow Readers presents author Angel Martinez. Martinez will be sharing her latest release Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists with a reading, Q&A, and signing.
While Angel Martinez is the queer fiction pen name of a writer of several genres, she writes both kinds of queer fiction – Science Fiction and Fantasy (sometimes serious and sometimes not so much.) Angel has one husband, one son, two cats, a changing variety of other furred and scaled companions, a love of all things beautiful and a terrible addiction to the consumption of both knowledge and chocolate.
Uncommonly Tidy Poltergeists sits comfortably at the intersection of serious and humorous. When Taro Torres is plagued during his international travels by something that’s been cleaning glasses, putting dishes away, and even dusting. At least he hopes it’s a cleaning-obsessed poltergeist and not his own anxieties burbling over into neat freak fits he doesn’t remember. Taro’s skeptical but desperate enough to try even a ghost hunter. As the paranormal puzzles multiply and Jack begins to suggest the entity might not be a ghostly one, it’s a race to see whether Taro’s poltergeist or his relationship with the obviously-not-ace ghost hunter, Jack Montrose, will reach maximum strangeness first.
THIS COMING SUNDAY, from 12:00 – 2:00 PM, help us celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birth day with A Seuss Celebration! Join us for an afternoon of crafts and reading aloud.
