Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe is proud to launch Authors for Action, a new event series that pairs authors with nonprofits in order to amplify a cause, raise the profile of change-makers, and create a space for the community to come together for good.

For our first event, we are going big and raising money to Kill the Bill.

Join Sara Gruen (Water for Elephants), Charles Frazier (Cold Mountain), Joshilyn Jackson (The Opposite of Everyone), Kim Michele Richardson (GodPretty in the Tobacco Field), Jamie Mason (Monday's Lie), Beth Revis (Body Electric), Jake Bible (Little Dead Man) and more for what is sure to be the literary event of the season. Authors will read their responses to the same writing prompt. Though the reason we are gathering is no laughing matter, you can expect a fun and zany event. There will also be a Q & A session, so think of some good questions to submit.

Tickets are $20 or $50 with a VIP pre-event cocktail party where you can rub elbows with the literati at Sovereign Remedies. VIP Cocktail party at 5. Doors open at 6:30 for the main event. Books will be for sale in the lobby and authors will be signing after the show.

Buy Tickets at the Asheville Community Theatre Box Office.

All proceeds from tickets sales after costs will be divided among the ACLU of NC, Campaign for Southern Equality, Tranzmission, and Equality NC and their efforts to repeal HB2 and overcome the harm it has caused in our community.
