Fox Cities Book Festival 2015

Fox Cities Book Festival Event, Meet the Author!

Steven Brust, author of the Vlad Taltos series.

Prolific author Steven Brust is clearly comfortable working within the literary environment of fantastical, deeply layered stories involving an immense range of characters. He began writing novels with Jhereg, published in 1983, and hasn't stopped writing since.

Last year's release of The Incrementalists takes readers down a slightly more recognizable rabbit hole, with a dizzying mixture of secret societies, murder, and immortality. It's also set in Las Vegas, the author's city of residence.

B.J. Hollars, writer, Dispatches from the Drownings

B.J. Hollars is the author of nonfiction, fiction, and hybrid texts. His nonfiction work Opening the Doors: the Desegregation of the University of Alabama and the Fight for Civil Rights in Tuscaloosa recounts the little-known behind-the-scenes saga that embroiled a president, a governor, and a civil rights leader.

In his other nonfiction book, Thirteen Loops: Race, Violence and the Last Lynching in America, Hollars again looks at our civil rights history as he follows events that led to three murders during three different decades of the 20th century.

June Melby, author of My Family and Other Hazards 

When June Melby was 10, her parents abruptly purchased the Tom Thumb Mini Golf Course in the small Wisconsin town where the family vacationed. This event suddenly turned Melby's summers into chore-filled months with intense family time. And then, as if to answer her prayers, the park was sold, and Melby was inexplicably crushed. Collecting moments of humor from these years, Melby wrote the endearing memoir, My Family and Other Hazards, which was released in 2014.
