A Vanity Fair Hot Type pick, The Resurrectionist is a cross between cross between Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Gray’s Anatomy, and offers two incredible books in one. The first book is a fictional biography of Dr. Spencer Black while the second book is Black’s magnum opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia, an anatomical reference manual of mythological beasts all rendered in meticulously detailed black-and-white anatomical illustrations. The powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, Brooklyn will host an event featuring a gallery showing of Hudspeth’s artwork from the book, a discussion with the author moderated by Aaron Sagers of CNN.com and MTVGeek, followed by a book signing.
Best of all, the event is free and open to the public! It’s guaranteed to be a great time, so come on out!
Where: The powerHouse Arena
When: Monday, June 17 from 7-9pm
