Malvern Books says
Join us for the eleventh event in our Novel Night series, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: two published authors will read from their books and there’ll be an audience Q & A. We’ll then have an open mic for writers who have signed up to read from their unpublished short stories or novels. And finally, we’ll have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of our favorite prose titles and invite questions from the audience. Also worth noting: there will be snacks!

This month’s readers will be Jim Sanderson and Dale Bridges. Jim will be sharing his most recent novel, Hill Country Property, and Dale will be reading from his short fiction.

Jim Sanderson has published three collections of short stories: Semi-Private Rooms (1994); Faded Love (Ink Brush Press, 2010), and Trashy Behavior (Lamar University Press, 2013). He has published seven novels, including: El Camino del Rio (University of New Mexico Press, 1998), Safe Delivery (University of New Mexico Press, 2000); La Mordida (University of New Mexico Press, 2002); Nevin’s History: A Novel of Texas (Texas Tech University Press, 2004); Dolph’s Team (Ink Brush Press, 2011); and Nothing Left to Lose (TCU Press, 2014). And he has published an essay collection, A West Texas Soapbox (1998). He is presently serving as the chair of the English and Modern Language Department for Lamar University.

Dale Bridges is a fiction writer, essayist, and freelance journalist. His writing has been featured in more than thirty publications, including The Rumpus, The Masters Review, and Barrelhouse Magazine. For several years, Dale was the A&E editor at an alternative newspaper called Boulder Weekly, where he wrote an award-winning humor column titled That’s Irrelevant. He has also won awards from the Society of Professional Journalists for his feature writing, narrative nonfiction, and cultural criticism. He has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize on several occasions, and his essays and short stories have been anthologized. He lives in Austin with his wife and two cats. He is currently working on his first novel.
