The Free by Willy Vlautin (Harper Perennial)
Willy Vlautin launches his new novel The Free with very special guests Chuck Palahniuk and Chelsea Cain, in a Skylight Books event at the Echoplex! This event will feature readings, giveaways, music, lighted beachballs, pajamas, and more! The $24 ticket includes a signed copy of Vlautin's book The Free. Additional signed copies of books by all three authors will be available for purchase at the event. Audience members should wear their PJs and bring a pillow (seriously). Non-pajama wearers will regret it once the PJ people start getting presents from the stage!
NOTE: SKYLIGHT BOOKS IS PRESENTING THIS EVENT AT THE ECHOPLEX. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
Willy Vlautin is the author of the previous novels The Motel Life, Northline, and Lean on Pete, and is the singer and songwriter of the band Richmond Fontaine. The Free has been praised by George Pelecanos as "another outstanding book from one of America’s most underappreciated artists," and by Jonathan Evison as "courageous, powerful, and mercifully refreshing."
Chelsea Cain is the author of the six New York Times bestselling Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers, including Heartsick and her most recent novel, Let Me Go. Her thrillers have been named among Stephen King’s top ten favorite books of the year, and included in NPR’s list of the top 100 thrillers ever written.
Chuck Palahniuk is the author of thirteen novels and two nonfiction books, and is one of Skylight's bestselling authors. His novels include Fight Club, which was made into a film by David Fincher; Choke, which was made into a film by director Clark Gregg; and his most recent novels, Damned and Doomed.
