Debut author (and former Hicklebee) Cassandra Myers

Event date: 
Sunday, April 21, 2024 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

The boss of an Irish crime family is getting killed in the earliest pages of They Shut Me Up, and the events leading up to that fatal moment are narrated by three minions in the syndicate. This is a funny and foul-mouthed look at a gang that needs better HR. It's a book with local color, Seinfeldian observations, and an ending that lands where you probably don't suspect the suspect.

Cassandra Myers has watched Boardwalk Empire and Seinfeld far too often. Her work has been published in Mystery Tribune and is upcoming in Failbetter. Her short story “Two Notes” won Honorable Mention in the Kalanithi Writing Award contest. Her journalistic writing has been published in The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Daily News, The Bakersfield Californian, The Santa Cruz Sentinel, and others. She graduated from UC Berkeley with a B.A. in comparative literature and has worked as a bookstore clerk, an administrative associate, and a university science writer.

Cassie Myers started working as a bookseller at Hicklebee's when she was 15 (starting as soon as she qualified for a work permit.) She's been a university science writer for years, but Hicklebee's doesn't known know how to quit her. So we're having a launch party for her debut novel. This is a free event for adults.
