The event will include a moderated conversation with fellow author Mitchell S. Jackson (The Residue Years), a discussion with the audience, and a book signing with Jamison to follow.

Tickets are $25 for the event only, or $45 with a hardcover copy of The Recovering; books are distributed at the event.
