Cliques, Clubs, and Secret Societies: New in Texas Fiction
2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Thursday, October 28, 2021

Join two Austin authors as they discuss their fast-paced new novels, both centered on mysterious societies. In May Cobb’s The Hunting Wives, it’s a gun-toting posse of hard-partying women . . . who may be complicit in a murder. In Chandler Baker’s The Husbands—currently being made into a feature film starring Kristen Wiig—it’s a Stepford-esque utopia where the women put their professions first while the guys stay home and cover the chores, but main character Nora Spangler senses not everything is as it seems.

In partnership with Austin360 and Austin American-Statesman
