Description

At summer’s start, unicorns arrive to Kepler's Literary Foundation! One of fantasy’s most lauded authors, Peter S. Beagle of The Last Unicorn, visits Kepler’s Books in June for a celebration of his lifetime achievements.

Beagle’s many beloved works include Tamsin, Summerlong, The Overneath, and more, alongside edited collections like The Urban Fantasy Anthology and The Secret History of Fantasy. The acclaimed author's effortless fantasy writing first entered print with the novel A Fine & Private Place, when he was just nineteen years old. In a discussion around his latest edited collection, The Unicorn Anthology, Beagle will sign books and share about his career in the five decades since The Last Unicorn was published.

This writer’s words have graced print, stage, and screen in a countless array of imagined worlds, from Middle Earth to outer space, from Hagsgate to a unicorn-laden Calabria. Endlessly imaginative, Beagle weaves unexpected magic into literary landscapes which most need hope. Beagle's latest published anthology honors a recurring figure of optimism from over half a century of his writing: unicorns at their finest.

Joining in conversation is local science fiction treasure and Kepler's favorite, Meg Elison, author of The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, which won the Philip K. Dick award and multiple book-of-the-year awards in 2016. Her final novel in that Road To Nowhere trilogy, The Book of Flora, published on April 23rd. Elison will stay to sign books after the discussion concludes.

Calling all magical creatures: come celebrate this once-in-a-generation talent, as Peter S. Beagle offers a lifetime's worth of unicorn expertise.
