Daryl Gregory reads from and discusses his genre-mixing novels, stories and comics. His latest novel, Spoonbenders (Knopf/riverrun), was named one of 2017's best books by National Public Radio. "Gregory writes with humor and charm, offering up a rollicking and quick-paced plot tailor-made for summer, but what makes the novel magical is his exploration of what it means to harbor these gifts." -- The New York Times.
