HOSTED BY PITTSBURGH ARTS & LECTURES

David Mitchell is known for breaking barriers in fiction writing. Called “fascinating” and “fearless,” his genre-defying novels include CLOUD ATLAS, BLACK SWAN GREEN, THE BONE CLOCKS, and SLADE HOUSE, to be released in October 2015. Join Mitchell for a special evening during his week-long US tour. He will discuss SLADE HOUSE and his writing process, and answer audience questions. A book signing follows the presentation.

ABOUT SLADE HOUSE: Keep your eyes peeled for a small black iron door. Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you’ll find the entrance to Slade House: a surreal place where visitors see what they want to see, including some things that should be impossible. Every nine years, the house’s residents—an odd brother and sister—extend a unique invitation to someone who’s different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it’s already too late. . . . Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story—as only David Mitchell could imagine it.
