Charles Soule presents The Oracle Year
In conversation with Abraham Riesman
Wine reception to follow
Bestselling comics franchise writer Charles Soule (Daredevil, She-Hulk, Curse Words) presents his thrilling debut novel of a twentysomething New Yorker who wakes up one morning with the power to predict the future. In The Oracle Year, an unassuming Manhattan bassist wreaks havoc on the world stage as a modern Nostradamus. Protecting his anonymity by calling himself the Oracle, he sets up a heavily guarded website that soon draws rabid followers and high-powered enemies, from the President of the Unites States to an assassin grandmother. Delivering fast-paced adventure on a global scale as well as sharp-witted satire on our concepts of power and faith, The Oracle Year is an audacious debut that keeps readers guessing. Soule presents his novel in conversation with Abraham Riesman, staff writer at New York magazine. A wine reception follows the reading.
