Jamil Moledina, TEARING THE SKY (Kalyphon Press, Trade Paperback, $14.95), Saturday, November 13th at 5:00 pm -
We're pleased to welcome local author Jamil Moledina as we host a debut
party for his first novel, TEARING THE SKY. Set in the extremely
far future, the story concerns Stanford student Kale Eritrus.
Despite the extraordinary advances that humanity has made (including
mastery over matter and energy,) Kale can't choose a major, obsesses
about solitary hobbies, and fumbles through conversations with the
opposite sex. However, his everyday concerns suddenly pale when he
discovers that civilization is about to be shattered by the final act
of the Big Bang: the Big Crunch. With nothing to hold him back,
Kale takes the two women he can't choose between on an expedition to
find out what's going on. What they uncover on their
galaxies-spanning adventure will fundamentally alter what it means to
be human. Check out the book trailer here, and don't miss the
chance to meet this up-and-coming author! <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVDfhlDR-V0>

least. We are less than one block away from the Montgomery St.

be late for the event! Phone (night of event) 415-572-1015.
