Join us in celebrating the launch of the novel Collision Theory by Adrian Todd Zuniga. With readings from Adrian and Jason Neulander.
Collision Theory is Adrian Todd Zuniga’s memorably heartfelt and headlong debut novel. Its suddenness, its unexpectedness, its humor, and its humanity make for an unforgettable, surprising, and emotional read.
Adrian Todd Zuniga is a creator and host of Literary Death Match, and is the founding editor of Opium Magazine, which is a reading series that occurs regularly in New York City, San Francisco, and London, and has launched in 54 cities worldwide including Beijing, Edinburgh, Chicago, and Paris. Zuniga is also a Pushcart Prize-nominated writer for his short fiction and an award-winning journalist.
Jason Neulander is an award-winning theatre artist, filmmaker, and producer based in Austin, Texas. He founded and was the artistic director of Austin’s premiere producer of new plays Salvage Vanguard Theater from 1994 to 2008. His transmedia sci-fi multiverse THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS, which he wrote, directed, and produced, premiered in 2010 and has taken the form of graphic novels, a YouTube series, podcasts, audio dramas, novels, and a live theatrical tour. It was adapted for television by PBS. His feature film debut Fugitive Dreams shoots in 2018. “A seemingly inexhaustible ability to surprise. And thrill. And horrify. And amuse. And intrigue.” —The Austin Chronicle
* A note on parking: Our landlord has requested that we ask everyone to please only use the store parking lot for attending events at Malvern Books and stores within the Park Plaza Shopping Center. Unfortunately, if you leave your car before or after an event (if you park out front with the intention of getting a meal across the road before attending an event here, for instance), there's a chance your car could be towed or booted, and we’d hate for that to happen! If parking is unavailable in the store parking lot, please use residential streets. Or, for evening events, you can park at Breed Hardware, 718 W. 29th Street, when they're closed (they close at 6pm on Saturdays). And if you park in our lot, please watch out for potholes! *
* Accessibility: Malvern Books has a wheelchair ramp and is wheelchair accessible. We also have two accessible parking spots by the ramp and a single occupancy ADA standard restroom. If you have other accessibility needs or need other accommodations, please call us at 512-322-2097. *
