Pasadena Author Fair


Four of our writers will be appearing at the second annual Author Fair sponsored by the Pasadena Public Library this coming Saturday.  Rubin Johnson, Kay Murdy, Raquel Reyes-Lopez and Mary Terzian will be among the fifty-plus authors who will be speaking and signing books at the Fair.

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 12.33.58 PMRubin Johnson writes tales of the near future, 25 years out, with a hint of technological optimism. Two of his books,  Well Oiled and Cyberbully Blues, will be for sale and signing at the Fair on Saturday. In addition, he’ll be speaking about Mayberry, the setting for both of these stories in the auditorium at 1:30.

Kay MurdyKay Murdy‘s most recent book, Song of the Dove, was selected as third place winner for novels by the Catholic Press Association. It’s a story of Mary of Nazareth, a Jewish woman of the first century who lived in a village nestled in the hills of Israel. She had parents, friends, a husband, a son, and she struggled to understand the strange things happening to her in a time and a place with more than its share of  political and religious turmoil. What happened tested both her faith and courage. Kay will speak in the auditorium at 1:20.

Raquel2Raquel Reyes-Lopez is assistant editor of Cadence Collective and hosts a regular open-mic reading series at Half Off Books in Whittier called Moon Pixel Open-Mic. She has had poems published with Bank Heavy-Press, East Jasmine Review, River’s Voice, Kleft Jaw Press, Poetry in Motion, and San Gabriel Valley Poetry Quarterly. This Saturday at the Fair she is presenting Born to Electrify, a collection of her poems.

Mary MaryTerzian is the author of The Immigrant’s Daughter, an award-winning memoir of her early years as an Armenian immigrant growing up in Cairo. In Politically Homeless, out later this year, she continues her story as a young woman, traveling across three continents, including Africa, during the turbulent 1960s.
