Atticus Books, a genre-busting literary press based in Madison, N.J., is hosting an indie lit gathering in downtown Madison on Saturday, Nov. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. The "small press shindig" is being held on Small Business Saturday to celebrate the launch of Armageddon, Texas, an allegorical novel by New York City native Tommy Zurhellen, the award-winning author of Nazareth, North Dakota and Apostle Islands (Books 1 and 2 of The Messiah Trilogy). 

The event will be held in the beautiful setting of Madison's new independent bookstore, Short Stories Community Book Hub, on 32 Main Street. Joining Tommy Z will be Atticus Books authors Jared Yates Sexton (An End to All Things) and Lori Jakiela (Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe).

This is small press entertainment at its finest, hosted by Atticus Books publisher Dan Cafaro of Madison, with a Q&A for individuals interested in discussing the brave new world of indie publishing. Wine & cheese will be served.
