Join us for a reading with author Christopher Rowe, who will read from his new novel, The Navigating Fox. A conversation with author Alix E. Harrow will follow. This in-person event will be free and open to the public. We recommend arriving early for the best seating.
About the Book: Quintus Shu’al, the world’s only navigating fox, is in disgrace after guiding an expedition to its doom, leaving no survivors. One year later, Quintus is offered the chance to redeem himself: he will need to lead a motley, fractious team—both human and animal—all the way to the gates of Hell.
About the Author: Christopher Rowe (he/him) is the author of the acclaimed story collection Telling the Map, as well as a middle grade series, the Supernormal Sleuthing Service, co-written with his wife, author Gwenda Bond. He has been a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Neukom, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards. He lives in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky, with his wife and their many unruly pets.
