Last Thursday
Hyde Brothers, Booksellers
Thursday Oct. 27 at 7pm
A.C. Dreher, Steve Henn, Beth Powers

As part of an ongoing reading series at Hyde Brothers, I’ll be reading at least one, possibly two, stories from my collection, Sorcery & Widgets. And signed copies of the book are available for purchase at the store if you can’t wait to start reading!

If you’ve never been to Hyde Brothers, you should go even if you can’t make it on Thursday (they have bookstore cats!). The store is located at 1428 Wells Street in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and the event takes place from 7pm to 9:30pm on October 27th with each author reading for 15-20 minutes with a brief intermission between readers. You can find more information on the bookstore’s website and Facebook page.

I’ll leave you with a preview of the local authors that will be reading their work at the event, and I hope to see you there!

Beth Powers writes science fiction and fantasy stories. A lifelong resident of Fort Wayne, Powers briefly resided in Ohio in order to earn her Master's in History from Miami University and her Ph.D. from Ohio State University, where she studied women and pirates in nineteenth-century American literature. When she's not writing, Powers works in IT, using her tech wizard skills to problem-solve and assist others with technology. Her work has been published in several magazines, including Daily Science Fiction, Stupefying Stories, and Deep Magic. Most of her stories are collected in her book, Sorcery & Widgets (available at Hyde Bros!).

Before A.C. Dreher began her present career as a firefighter-paramedic, she taught college composition and classical mythology. Her poetry chapbook, Missing Persons Report: Accounts from the Mushroom Cloud was published by Finishing Line Press in 2017. In her spare time of late, she tends a garden where a spotted dog checks every morning for a rabbit he once saw, and every day she feeds a cat who has somehow still never been fed once in his life.

Steve Henn teaches high school English in northern Indiana. His previous books include Guilty Prayer (Main Street Rag, 2021) and Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year (Wolfson, 2017). He's proud of the children of himself and late American artist Lydia Henn. He roots for the Fighting Irish, played high school soccer, and gives poetry readings in all kinds of places, from Pittsburgh to Milwaukee to Long Beach, travel conditions and money conditions and time permitting. His most recent collection is the chapbook American Male from Main Street Rag (2022). His favorite food is crab cakes, which are also a unit of value measurement for anything in the world (this reading = 52 crab cakes - for the price of none!!).
