She will be reading from the book The Dream-Quest of Villet Boe. Here is what the critics have to say:
The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is "...a short striking, lyrical work" (Barnes and Noble Book Blog): a fascinating, gender-flipped reconsideration of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath. Ulthar Women's College professor Vellitt Boe must retrieve one of her students, who has fled with her lover into the waking world -- our world." "This book held me spellbound from start to finish." Amal El-Mohtar, NPR "...a novella at once fun and clever and thoughtful." Tor.com
