Alex and Mya book launch

Pamela Alex DiFrancesco will read from their new book Devils That Have Come to Stay, and Mya Byrne will perform music based on the novel that the two co-wrote.

Joining us for this event will be special guests Emma Caterine and Ella Boureau. Emma and Ella are both writers of thoughtful, intelligent fiction that sometimes falls under the genre fiction label.

 Pamela Alex

Most of Pamela Alex DiFrancesco‘s life is based around the written word. Pamela Alex has, in the past, worked at newspapers, interned in publishing, and taught writing in after school programs. Pamela Alex’s short fiction has appeared in literary magazines such as The New Ohio Review and The Carolina Quarterly, and on the website of Stoned Crow Press, of which they are a founding member. Pamela Alex also volunteers with homeless LGBTQIA youth and is slowly learning to play the banjo. (Photo Credit: Sam Teichman)
