Doomed, Chuck Palahniuk
Calgary Public Library, John Dutton Theatre
Tickets: $40 / book included
Bestselling novelist and author of the cult hit, Fight Club, haunts the Wordfest stage following the October launch of Doomed, the sequel in the Damned trilogy. Admission includes book.
Madison Spencer, the liveliest, snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the adventures in the afterlife begun in Damned. Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from Hell, she now wanders the Purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, ultimately making a rendezvous with destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific called, not accidentally, Madlantis.
Palahniuk has achieved several distinctions including the 1997 and 2003 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award and the 1997 Oregon Book Award for Best Novel. He has published over fifteen books and is a very funny, creative and thought-provoking writer who draws much of his inspiration from his own life.
