Bookshop Santa Cruz is thrilled to welcome hit podcaster and New York Times bestselling novelist Joseph Fink— co-author of It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale — for a discussion and signing of his latest book, Alice Isn't Dead, a fast-paced, addictive thriller about a truck driver searching across America for the wife she had long assumed to be dead. Fink will be in conversation with bestselling author Tad Williams.

Alice Isn't Dead is a creepy, clever horror thriller, that centers around a truck driver who searches across America for her missing wife. During her journey, she encounters not-quite-human serial murderers, oracles living at gas stations and rest stops, a strange nameless adversary, and a terrible secret hidden in American history. The novel expands the story told in the hit podcast of the same name which has had over 6 million downloads in its first 10-episode season, making it one of the most downloaded fiction podcasts of all time. *Season 3 of the podcast launched this April. And it’s also being made into a TV series! Mr. Robot executive producer Kyle Bradstreet has been tapped to write and executive produce a TV adaptation of Alice Isn’t Dead, along with Fink. The series is in development at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions.  

EVENT DETAILS: This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Open seating. Seats are generally set up one hour prior to the event's start time. If you would like to reserve your spot in the signing line, please purchase a copy of Alice Isn't Dead with a priority signing line voucher below or at Bookshop Santa Cruz.
