Chuck Palahniuk has said about his world: "It can go to some dark places, but I always hope that it’s a trip worth making." He is the author of 11 previous novels, including bestsellers Haunted and Lullaby, as well as Choke and Fight Club, which were adapted into popular films that have reached cult-like status. His newest novel, Damned—called the six-feet-under version of The Breakfast Club—is narrated by an effervescent 11-year-old who has awoken in hell after a marijuana overdose. With a satirical parade of the banal elements of earthly and post-earthly life, Damned is a signature dark manifesto on Hell as only Palahniuk could imagine it. Pre-signed copies of Damned will be on sale at the event.
Signing guidelines: Mr. Palahniuk will personalize one copy of Damned, which must be purchased at the library on event day, and sign one back list title for the first 100 people in the signing line. He will sign for ca. 50 people prior to the event (at 12:30 pm) and 50 afterward. Tickets will be handed to the first 100 people in the signing line and collected as books are signed. If you have any questions, please call in advance.
