Samuel Snoek-Brown reading on October 26, 6pm

Join us for an evening with Tacoma author Samuel Snoek-Brown!

There Is No Other Way to Worship Them is an eerie and mesmerizing collection of short stories set in Mexico and Texas. Each of the collection's nine stories are woven together with themes of violence, mysticism and failures in the pursuit of love. Characters and landscapes slip from one story to the next, teasing readers with a sense of magical realism mastered by Snoek-Brown.

Rich, spirited, warm, and filled with the intimate detail, Snoek-Brown's stories are the kind that invite you inside, sit you down, and ask you to stay a while. And you will; you won't be able to look away.

— Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World: And Other Stories
