Reading with Author Justin T. Clark
May 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Author and historian Justin T Clark will be reading from his books, The Zero Season followed by a conversation between the Author and Artist Avelardo Ibarra.
“Equal parts historical thriller and a lesson in profound human empathy —reminiscent of Graham Green at his very best—The Zero Season is a rich and assured debut.”
— Tod Goldberg, NY Times bestselling author of Gangsterland
Event will be outside on the porch of Art in the Park.
