Join author Krystal Sutherland in-conversation with Kate O’Donnell when she discusses her fantastic second novel, A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares – a hilarious, reality-bending tale of two outsiders facing their greatest fears about life and love.

Ever since Esther Solar’s grandfather was cursed by Death, everyone in her family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime. Esther doesn’t know what her great fear is yet (nor does she want to), a feat achieved by avoiding pretty much everything. Elevators, small spaces and crowds are all off-limits. So are haircuts, spiders, dolls, mirrors and three dozen other phobias she keeps a record of in her semi-definitive list of worst nightmares. In an effort to break the curse that has crippled her family, Esther and her old classmate (and first crush!)  Jonah will meet every Sunday of senior year to work their way through the list, facing one terrifying fear at a time, including one that Esther hadn’t counted on: LOVE.

Light refreshments will be served and a tarot card reader will add enlightenment, mystique and further entertainment to the evening.
