Novel Night
Join us for the seventeenth 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 also 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: we’re offering 20% OFF ALL FICTION TITLES during Novel Night (from 6pm till closing).

Novel Night

This month’s readers will be Gudjon Bergmann, who will be reading from The Meditating Psychiatrist Who Tried to Kill Himself, and Richard Lee Price, who will be reading from

Gudjon Bergmann

Gudjon Bergmann is a veteran nonfiction author and novelist. The Meditating Psychiatrist Who Tried to Kill Himself is his debut novel and was inspired by an acquaintance’s suicide attempt more than fifteen years ago. In addition to being a mystery, the book challenges many of the ideas and stereotypes that people associate with meditation and spirituality. Bergmann was born and raised in Iceland, but moved to the USA in 2010 and became a US citizen in 2013. He publishes a new short story on his website every Friday (look for the #fridayshort).

Richard Lee Price

Richard Price is a musician and professor who lives in Austin. Troubadours draws on his experiences playing salsa in the live music capital of the world and his travels in Mexico. Troubadours is, in many respects, a love song to Austin and the Hill Country.
