From a terrorist cell of cyber-bullying victims working to annihilate the digital memory of their humiliation to a pandemic that leaves grieving parents battling for the media spotlight, these affecting tales invite us to examine our inability to control the world around us – and our own desires.

Our October Kill Your Darlings First Book Club event features Sonja Dechian discussing her profound, moving and wry debut story collection, An Astronaut’s Life (Text Publishing).

Sonja will be in conversation with KYD’s Online Editor Veronica Sullivan, followed by audience Q&A and book signing. You can enjoy the First Book Club even if you haven’t yet read the book – but you’ll definitely want to afterwards!
