Literati Bookstore Presents Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor


Literati is thrilled to welcome Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor, creators of the #1 international podcast Welcome to Night Vale to the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre on the campus of the University of Michigan, in support of their new book It Devours! for a ticketed event in downtown Ann Arbor. General Admission is the cost of the novel with tax--books are to be picked up at the venue the night of the event. Jospeh and Jeffrey will be with artist and illustrator Jessica Hayworth, and be in conversation with Detroit writer, actor, comedienne and host of The Moth Storyslam Ann Arbor Satori Shakoor, followed by an audience Q&A and signing.




ABOUT IT DEVOURS: From the authors of the New York Times bestselling novel Welcome to Night Vale and the creators of the #1 international podcast of the same name, comes a mystery exploring the intersections of faith and science, the growing relationship between two young people who want desperately to trust each other, and the terrifying, toothy power of the Smiling God.


Nilanjana Sikdar is an outsider to the town of Night Vale. Working for Carlos, the town's top scientist, she relies on fact and logic as her guiding principles. But all of that is put into question when Carlos gives her a special assignment investigating a mysterious rumbling in the desert wasteland outside of town. This investigation leads her to the Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God, and to Darryl, one of its most committed members. Caught between her beliefs in the ultimate power of science and her growing attraction to Darryl, she begins to suspect the Congregation is planning a ritual that could threaten the lives of everyone in town. Nilanjana and Darryl must search for common ground between their very different world views as they are faced with the Congregations darkest and most terrible secret.




Joseph Fink created the Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't Dead podcasts. He lives with his wife in New York.


Jeffrey Cranor co-writes the Welcome to Night Vale and Within the Wires podcasts. He also co-creates theater and dance pieces with choreographer/wife Jillian Sweeney. They live in New York.
