Coincident Monsters – A Conversation About Creating the Novel The Choir Boats with Daniel A. Rabuzzi and Deborah Mills
Date: Friday, December 11th
Carkodrillos, knife-tailed owls, knuckledogs, sea monsters and other oddities…. Join author Daniel A. Rabuzzi and illustrator Deborah Mills as they read from Daniel’s new fantasy novel The Choir Boats and display the art Deborah created to illustrate the book. Discuss with them how they collaborate (even as they remain happily married!).
The Choir Boats is a fantasy novel. If Jane Austen and J.R.R. Tolkien had hooked up, this might be their bastard offspring. In any event, The Choir Boats explores issues of race, gender, sin, and salvation, and includes a mysterious letter, knuckledogs, carkodrillos, smilax root, goat stew, and one very fierce golden cat. Deborah & Daniel will read from the novel, display artwork that inspired the illustrations, and describe how they worked together to create the overall piece– and their process as they co-create the sequel. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing. Brought to you by Phantasmaphile.
