Friend of the store and librarian extraordinaire Sarah Colombo will be celebrating the release of her debut novel Subterraneans with us on 9/1! 

Sarah has written science fiction novel set in the near future that probes deeply into modern society. Subterraneans addresses anxieties about being over exposed and under connected through the disappearance of Hil Mills. 

Hil Mills is missing. Worse, her boyfriend Ronnie can't find out anything about her because she's been living off-the-grid since childhood, and doesn't even have an online profile. In a world loaded with Screens, where robots do almost every job, Ronnie and a team of misfits try to solve the mystery of Hil's disappearance. Through warehouse raves, transcendentalism-obsessed communes, and bougie corporate parties, Ronnie digs for answers. Meanwhile, Hil's busy saving herself from her past, and a future she never wanted. Is it a conspiracy, a terror plot, or just a bad break-up? Spoiler alert: it's all that and more.

Author David Armand says "Sarah Colombo's debut novel, Subterranean, is a rollicking adventure set in a not-too-distant future--one in which most people are completely consumed by technology, while others long for the past: whether that be the 1990s of ravers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, and Nirvana, or Henry David Thoreau's mid-nineteenth century 'cabin of clay and wattles made.' But this book is also, like the best work of Vonnegut, Bradbury, and Philip K. Dick, a serious critique of our culture and the dangerous road down which we're headed. Subterranean will have readers simultaneously weeping for what once was and what could potentially be, while still giving them pause to laugh at all the human folly in between."

We are so excited to be hosting Sarah's launch and cannot wait for you all to read her book!
