Book Launch: Bob Proehl presents The Nobody People
In conversation with Sam Miller
Reception to follow
Author of A Hundred Thousand Worlds Bob Proehl returns to Greenlight to present The Nobody People, a timely saga of love and hope in the face of bigotry. When a group of outcasts with extraordinary abilities comes out of hiding, their clash with a violent society will spark a revolution—or an apocalypse. The nobody people are ordinary individuals with extraordinary gifts who want one only thing: to live as equals in an America that is gripped by fear and hatred. But the government is passing discriminatory laws. Violent mobs are taking to the streets. And one of their own—an angry young man seething with self-loathing—has used his power in an act of mass violence that has put a new target on the community. The Nobody People is a powerful novel that uses a world touched by the fantastic to explore our current reality— a story of continuing to fight for one another, no matter the odds. Proehl discusses his work and its contemporary relevance with Sam Miller, the Nebula-Award-winning author of The Art of Starving and Blackfish City. A reception will follow to celebrate the book’s launch.
