CHICAGO: Thursday Live Lit with Connor Coyne.

One of the first official Urbantasm events!

Please join me in CHICAGO on Thursday, December 7th for Indie Lit’s “Live Lit” event at the delightful 57th Street Books in Hyde Park, just two blocks from The University of Chicago.

I’ll be reading from URBANTASM: THE DYING CITY and will be talking about self-publishing and other literary adventures. I’ll have copies of Shattering Glass, Atlas, and Hungry Rats for sale. I will be joined by Ted McClelland, author of books including How To Speak Midwestern,
Young Mr. Obama and Nothin’ But Blue Skies.

Many thanks to Michael Kennedy (author of The Mosquito Song and Thanksgiving for Werewolves) for organizing this event!

Connor Coyne is a novelist living and working in Flint, Michigan. His first novel, Hungry Rats has been hailed by Heartland prize-winner Jeffery Renard Allen as "an emotional and aesthetic tour de force." His second novel, Shattering Glass, has been praised by Gordon Young, author of Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City as "a hypnotic tale that is at once universal and otherworldly." Connor represented Flint's 7th Ward as its artist-in-residence for the National Endowment for the Arts' Our Town grant, through which artists engaged ward residents to produce creative work in service of the 2013 City of Flint Master Plan. Connor's work has been published in Santa Clara Review, Moria Poetry Zine, East Village Magazine, Flint Broadside, Moomers Journal of Moomers Studies, The Saturnine Detractor, and Qua. Connor lives in Flint's East Village, less than a mile from the house where he grew up.
