Brice Matthieussent will be making his first-ever US appearances to support the release of his debut novel in English: Revenge of the Translator!



Join Malvern Books 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 they’ll also have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of their favorite prose titles. Also worth noting: they’re offering 20% OFF ALL FICTION TITLES during Novel Night (from 6pm till closing).
