Tomorrow, August 21, head over to BookCourt at 7 pm for a chance to meet Bruce Wagner, author of new novel Dead Stars. Satirizing Hollywood and our reality-TV and celebrity-obsessed culture, Wagner includes both fictional and real-life characters, such as Telma, a 13-year-old breast cancer survivor and American actor Michael Douglas. While Wagner’s characters and scenes are deliberately over-the-top and even graphic, they manage to reflect quite accurately the absurd realities that exist within today’s pop-culture-crazed America. Wagner will appear for a reading, audience Q&A, and book-signing.
BookCourt is located at 163 Court St. in Cobble Hill.
