DATE CHANGE! Reading + Book Signing • Michael Kardos

  • Ernest & Hadley Books 1928 7th St. Tuscaloosa, AL 35401 (map)

Join us as we welcome suspense author Michael Kardos for a public reading at 4:30 PM on Tuesday, Feb. 26. (Original date was 1/29 but we thought we were in for Snowmageddon 2.0)

Suspense is often thought of as a genre, akin to thriller or mystery, when really it’s at the heart of all kinds of stories—and is often the key ingredient to making those stories compelling.

Michael Kardos is the author of the novels Bluff, Before He Finds Her, and The Three-Day Affair, an Esquire best book of 2012, as well as the story collection One Last Good Time, which won the Mississippi Institute of Arts & Letters Award for fiction, and the textbook The Art and Craft of Fiction: A Writer’s Guide. His short stories have appeared in The Southern Review, Crazyhorse, Harvard Review, and many other magazines and anthologies, and have won a Pushcart Prize. Michael grew up on the Jersey Shore, received a degree in music from Princeton University, and played the drums professionally for a number of years. He has an M.F.A. in fiction from The Ohio State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Missouri. He lives in Starkville, Mississippi, where he is an associate professor of English and co-director of the creative writing program at Mississippi State University.
