From 'Kiss-Con' to Doomed Lusitania, Authors Cover Myriad Topics; Bosch, Calder, Nauman and Other Exhibitions Arrive; SPRING ARTS PREVIEW: AUTHORS


Henderson, Jane, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


What if Lewis and Clark were stuck in St. Louis because of an apocalypse?

That's the intriguing premise of Benjamin Percy's upcoming novel, "The Dead Lands." Intrepid modern explorers leave the militarized Sanctuary to head West, looking for more verdant lands.

Meanwhile, eco-poet John Shoptaw will read from his new collection, "Times Beach." Can't anyone cast St. Louis as Shangri- la? No matter, Percy and Shoptaw will be among the many authors in town this spring to discuss interesting books.

They will be joined by writers including David Sedaris, Barney Frank, Sara Gruen, Ridley Pearson and Heather Brewer. Some, like Erik Larson's "Dead Wake" about the sinking of the Lusitania, will require tickets. But most author visits are free. Books cost extra, of course.

This spring's events are listed by venue. Confirm details closer to the day because events are subject to change. This list may not include every author with a signing this spring. Visit events.stltoday.com for more information or the websites of individual venues.
