The Refrigerator Monologues will be published and released into the wild on June 6 – just over two weeks from now! To celebrate, Pandemonium Books & Games in Cambridge, MA (just across the Charles River from Boston) is throwing a launch party that Tuesday. Cat will be there to celebrate right alongside you, and admission is free! The event will be in the store’s downstairs space.
Here’s what Pandemonium has to say:
“Catherynne M. Valente’s new collection of connected novellas, The Refrigerator Monologues, with illustrations by Annie Wu, is releasing on June 6! Join the Hell Hath Club, a group of ‘fridged’ (killed off to further the storylines of male superheroes) superheroines, supervillainesses, and superhero girlfriends. Six of them share stories of their deaths, their lives, and their relationships with the male superheroes for whom they were killed.
You don’t have to be a comic book fan to enjoy this book, but comic book fans will pick up on fantastic Easter Eggs as well as connect the characters that Valente has created with their DC and Marvel counterparts.
Join us and help us launch The Refrigerator Monologues into the world! Event is free and open to the public and will be located in our downstairs space.”
If you live around Boston (or are within acceptable driving distance), put The Refrigerator Monologues Launch Party on your calendar! Come on out to Pandemonium Books & Games at 7 PM to meet Cat in person and get your book autographed. She can’t wait to share this book’s release with friends and fans!
Pandemonium has set up a Facebook event page for the launch, where you can indicate your interest and rest assured Facebook will keep you reminded of the date.
