The Mad Hatters Are Coming...

... to the Jean Cocteau.

If you're in Santa Fe or Albuquerque, or just passing through, mark Sunday evening down on your calendar. That's when we'll be hosting a special author event at the Jean Cocteau Cinema for the Hugo-award-winning editor and anthologist ELLEN DATLOW and her new book, MAD HATTERS AND MARCH HARES, featuring original stories set in the world of Alice In Wonderland.

It should be quite an evening. Ellen is always a delightful guest, and she'll have four of her writers with her: STEPHEN GRAHAM JONES, KRIS DIKEMAN, KATHERINE VAZ, and MATTHEW KRESSEL. Here's your chance to get your copy signed by all five contributors.

Not only that, but we'll also he having a MAD HAT CONTEST with prizes for the three maddest hats, as judged by our distinguished guests.

Admission is free with the purchase of a book. The madness starts at 7pm.

Mad Hatters
Do you know why hatters had this reputation for madness?

Mercury was used in the processing of felt hats and hatters would inhale that poison slowly over time, making them go mad.

You didn't ask us to..
Stay on topic. Let the MADNESS begin!

P.S. The Alice in Wonderland setting should make for some cool short stories. I'll look for it next time I'm at B&N.

George—do you usually attend the events at your theatre, or do you generally try to avoid them to give space to the visiting authors/artists? Or does it depend on the event? I live nowhere near NM so cannot attend any of these cool events—was just wondering.

Re: Attendance
I attend almost all the special events at the JCC, unless I am out of town. In many cases I interview the writer myself, or introduce the guest. But even when someone else handles those duties, I am usually in the audience.

I hope you see this. 11 years ago...today my dad passed away after a 10 year battle with spinal cancer. He was an active man and at the end he was a parapeligic in a wheel chair with his children and his wife bathing him....among other things not needed to be desribed because if you have or have known someone in the position you know what ge went through.

He was a science fiction amd fantasy fanatic. He majored in biology and chemistry at chapel hill and was a physical therapist that eventually owned his own company.

He introduced me to you. He introduced me to "Beauty and the Beast" first. Then it went from there. I truly love the Ice Dragon story.

I promised him I would finish reading what he called your opus. And I have every intention on doing that.

Thank you for putting so many great works out there that helped my father and I bond. I have many great memories thanks to your writing.
