Book Launch: Gabe Habash presents Stephen Florida
In conversation with Kevin Nguyen
Wine reception to follow
Gabe Habash launches his debut novel Stephen Florida, a new offering from internationally-renowned, innovative nonprofit publisher Coffee House Press. The novel follows a college wrestler in his senior season, when every practice, every match is a step closer to greatness and a step further from sanity. Profane, manic, and tipping into the uncanny, it's a story of loneliness, obsession, and the drive to leave a mark. Hanya Yanigihara writes, “This is a shape-shifter of a book, both a dark ode to the mysteries and landscapes of the American West and a complex and convincing character study.” Habash is joined in conversation with Kevin Nguyen, writer and deputy digital editor at GQ. A wine reception follows the discussion.
