Daniel Mallory Ortberg Reads from The Merry Spinster
Daniel Mallory Ortberg reads from his new story collection The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror.

+ poetry by Nicole Connolly

Ortberg is author of Texts from Jane Eyre, Advice columnist at Dear Prudence -, and co-founder of beloved website The Toast.

The reading is free and will be held at the beautiful Astro Lounge, a small event space located within Santa Rosa's new Astro Motel.

Hosted by Chelsea Rose Kurnick

Books will be for sale by Copperfield's Books

Parking: The Astro's lot is small, but there is an overflow lot one block away at 505 Santa Rosa Ave.

More about the book: A collection of darkly playful stories based on classic folk and fairy tales (but with a feminist spin) that find the sinister in the familiar and the familiar in the alienfrom Daniel Mallory Ortberg.

Readers of The Toast will instantly recognize Ortberg's boisterous good humor and uber-nerd swagger: those new to Ortberg's oeuvre will delight in this collection's unique spin on fiction, where something a bit mischievous and unsettling is always at work just beneath the surface.

Unfalteringly faithful to its beloved source material, The Merry Spinster also illuminates the unsuspected, and frequently, alarming emotional complexities at play in the stories we tell ourselves, and each other, as we tuck ourselves in for the night.

Bed time will never be the same.
