Shelley Jackson presents Riddance: Or: The Sybil Joines Vocational School for Ghost Speakers & Hearing-Mouth Children
In conversation with Darcey Steinke

Greenlight Bookstore welcomes author Shelley Jackson to present her first new novel in twelve years! In Riddance, children with speech impediments attend a school in Massachusetts to learn how to channel the dead, under the direction of a headmistress who considers herself a pioneer of “necrophysics.” Written in the form of transcripts, found documents, and archival material, the novel is a disquieting supernatural investigation into life after death, and marks the much-anticipated return of a brilliant writer. Jackson presents her newest novel, set in the overlapping worlds of the living and the dead, with author and Greenlight neighbor Darcey Steinke who praises Riddance as “a book that does not contain magic, but that is actually magic.”
