2016 Scribe-Award-winning Wisconsin author Stephen D. Sullivan joins the Chicago-based performance duo of musician-songwriter Maya Kuper & (Midwest Book Awards Silver-Prize-winning author—and Milwaukee native) Paul McComas for a performance and party benefitting Woodland Pattern Book Center.

 

Sullivan, McComas and Kuper will perform scenes from the McComas/Sullivan collection Uncanny Encounters—LIVE!: Dark Drama, Sci-Fi Screams & Horrific Humor (Walkabout Publishing, 2015). The book's eight oft-allegorical short to mid-length genre works comprise a 90-minute, two-act stage show, of which the trio will present 30 minutes' worth of “greatest hits.”

 

Costumes optional, with prizes awarded to the top three literary-related costumes!

 

Admission goes to Woodland Pattern, as do proceeds from sales of Uncanny Encounters and four prior, prize-winning books by McComas and Sullivan.
