Jessica Stilling & Beverly Gologorsky will both be reading from their new novels.
Peter Pan meets The Lovely Bones in Jessica Stilling’s beautifully rendered and emotionally devastating debut novel about where children go when they die. Betwixt and Between follows three intertwining narratives: that of Preston Tumbler, a ten-year-old boy who is poisoned by a neighbor and wakes up in Neverland, where he finds himself—along with a group of other deceased children—under the watchful eye of Peter Pan; Preston’s mother, Claire, in the real world, as she deals with the loss of her son; and a family in Victorian London as they wait for their little girl to awake from a coma, a family whose neighbor happens to be Peter Pan author JM Barrie.
Jessica Stilling received her MFA from City College and her BA from The New School.
