Novel Night
Join us for the fourteenth event in our Novel Night series, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: two published authors will read from their books and there’ll be an audience Q & A. We’ll then have an open mic for writers who have signed up to read from their unpublished short stories or novels. And finally, we’ll have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of our favorite prose titles and invite questions from the audience. Also worth noting: there will be snacks!

Novel Night

This month’s readers will be Scott Semegran and Dwaines Lawless. Scott will read from his novel The Meteoric Rise of Simon Burchwood and Dwaines will be reading from Cajun Moon.

His comic strips have appeared in the following newspapers: The Austin Student, The Funny Times, The Austin American-Statesman, Rocky Mountain Bullhorn, Seven Days, The University of Texas at Dallas Mercury, and The North Austin Bee. His short stories have appeared in independent publications and literary journals like The Next One Literary Journal from the Texas Tech University Honors College. He is a Kindle bestselling author.

Cajun MoonDwaines Lawless is a Cajun and like all Cajuns, loves telling bayou tales of folk healing and voodoo. A UT/Austin graduate, art educator, teacher of the blind, mother and grandmother, Lawless has written a gumbo tale, spiced with Cajun folklore, secret voodoo rituals and the mystery of dreams, especially the Cajun nightmare, the cochemere.
