    Chavisa Woods, author of Albino Album, will be joined by Jeanne Thornton, author of The Dream of Doctor Bantam, on Wednesday, June 5th at Bluestockings for a night of readings and conversation.

    In The Dream of Doctor Bantam, Jeanne Thornton tells an unlikely love story of  rough, chain-smoking Texan Julie Thatch and her lover, Patrice. When Julie’s hero and sister dieds after being hit by a car, she finds her self gravitating to Patrice- someone strangely similar to her sister, and someone who is also a member of the Scientology-esque Institute of Temporal Illusion.

    The Albino Album is a novel as songs that tells the epic story of a girl who rides the line between abandon and lunacy on a speeding albino horse.
