Savoy Bookshop & Café invites you to join us for a masquerade and book launch in celebration of award-winning author C.S.E. Cooney’s new novella Desdemona and the Deep. Costumes are highly encouraged but not mandatory—come dressed up in “goblinpunk” or “faerie finery”—think of movies like Labyrinth, Legend, Willow, Bright, Lord of the Rings, and Hellboy 2! Paint your face, put on a mask, break out that old set of fake fangs! There will be live music, a reading, and giveaways! Snacks and wine will be provided!
About the Book
In Desdemona and the Deep, the spoiled daughter of a rich mining family must retrieve the tithe of men her father promised to the world below. On the surface, her world is rife with industrial pollution that ruins the health of poor factory workers while the idle rich indulge themselves in unheard-of luxury. Below are goblins, mysterious kingdoms, and an entirely different hierarchy.
