They are the author of Domestication Handbook (Rogue Factorial, 2012) and self/help/work/book//The Story of Ruth and Eliza (Birds of Lace, 2014). Their poetry and essays appear at Mutha Magazine, Entropy, and elsewhere. They will be reading at 1pm.

Pulitzer Prize winner, and Gainesville local Jack E. Davis will be in the store to talk about his stunning history, _The Gulf_ at 3pm. Jack has been a huge supporter of Third House Books, and we are excited to welcome him back for what is always an incredible, thought provoking reading.

Tom Hart, critically acclaimed Eisner-nominated cartoonist and the Executive Director of SAW in Gainesville, will be reading some of his work at 5pm alongside a projector.
