Novel Night with Rachael Sparks & Tamar Ben-Ur
December 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for another installment of Novel Night, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: published authors will read from their books and there’ll be an audience Q & A. And we’ll also have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of our favorite prose titles. Also worth noting: we’re offering 20% OFF ALL FICTION TITLES during Novel Night (from 6pm till closing).
This month’s Novel Night features Rachael Sparks and Tamar Ben-Ur. Rachel will read from Resistant, a compelling hybrid of romance and science-based fiction; and Tamar will read from Oasis 2064, part one of a saga that begins in 2064, following a series of natural catastrophes that cause death, destitution, and the collapse of social systems.
Rachael Sparks was born in Waco, Texas. She graduated with a degree in microbiology from Texas A&M University. After a career in Austin, Texas, as a transplant specialist, she joined a startup fighting healthcare-acquired infections. She recently relocated with her husband, young daughter, and mother to Asheville, North Carolina, where she finally put her first novel onto the page. In her free time she serves on the board of the Asheville Museum of Science and loves to cook, brew, garden, and spend time with friends and family.
Tamar Ben-Ur retired from her position as a systems analyst and felt called to write a novel incorporating her grave concerns over climate change and social injustice. Her work intertwines her imagination with experiences such as twenty years of involvement in shamanic drumming sessions. She currently lives in Austin, Texas.
