Charlie Jane Anders Staff Pick

When: Mon., Feb. 18, 7 p.m. 2019
Price: free admission
Charlie Jane Anders won the Nebula award for her novel All the Birds in the Sky, and similar buzz surrounds her new novel, The City in the Middle of the Night. Sophie is presumed dead after being exiled onto the beast-haunted ice that covers the side of the planet that knows only freezing darkness. The other hemisphere exists in eternal sunshine, but its cities are equally dangerous. The beasts around Sophie aren't mindless, however, and she forms a psychic bond that allows her to communicate with and understand one of them. The City in the Middle of the Night is a book about culture, empathy and other big ideas that has drawn comparisons to the best of Ursula K. LeGuin. The San Francisco-based Anders comes to St. Louis to discuss and sign her novel at 7 p.m. Monday, February 18, at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South Twelfth Street; as the guest of Left Bank Books. Admission is free, and Anders' books will be sold on site.
