The Center for Fiction Presents Melissa Broder on Death Valley with Karah Preiss

10/04/2023 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Join us at The Center for Fiction for a conversation about Death Valley, the newest release from author Melissa Broder (Milk Fed, The Pisces). Broder brings her dark, existential humor to this thrillingly imaginative tale about a woman who has fled California—and her sorrows—for the desert. She enters into a mysterious opening in a large cactus while on a hike and embarks on an equally hilarious and poignant journey of self-reflection. Broder is joined by Karah Preiss, co-founder of Belletrist, for a conversation about the intersections of grief and humor, and utilizing imaginative, impossible elements to unlock human truth. After the conversation, Broder will sign and personalize books.
