Book Signing: Julia Whicker
January 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Set five hundred years in the future, Wonderblood is Julia Whicker‘s fascinating literary debut, set in a barren United States, an apocalyptic wasteland where warring factions compete for control of the land in strange and dangerous carnivals. A mad cow-like disease called “Bent Head” has killed off millions. Those who remain worship the ruins of NASA’s space shuttles, and Cape Canaveral is their Mecca. Medicine and science have been rejected in favor of magic, prophecy, and blood sacrifice.
Politics and survival are at the center of this ravishing novel that will delight fans of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and Jeff VanderMeer’s Acceptance.
FUN FACT: Julia is married to Mary’s nephew!
