On Tuesday, May 26th at 6:30pm, meet celebrated author Laird Barron at the Colgate Bookstore! Barron will be presenting his latest novel, WORSE ANGELS. Copies of his books will be available for purchase and signing.

Laird Barron was born in Alaska, where he raised huskies and worked in the construction and fishing industries for much of his youth. He is the author of several short-story collections and two novels, and his work has also appeared in many magazines and anthologies. A multiple Locus, World Fantasy, and Bram Stoker Award nominee, he is also a three-time winner of the Shirley Jackson Award. Barron lives in Kingston, New York.

About WORSE ANGELS (G.P. Putnam’s Sons ▪ Penguin Random House): Ex-Mob enforcer-turned-private investigator Isaiah Coleridge pits himself against a rich and powerful foe when he digs into a possible murder and a sketchy real estate deal worth billions. Ex-major-domo and bodyguard to an industrial tycoon-cum-U.S. Senator, Badja Adeyemi is in hiding and shortly on his way to either a jail cell or a grave, depending on who finds him first. In his final days as a free man, he hires Isaiah Coleridge to tie up a loose end: the suspicious death of his nephew four years ago. At the time police declared it an accident, and Adeyemi isn't sure it wasn't, but one final look may bring his sister peace. So it is that Coleridge and his investigative partner Lionel Robard find themselves in the upper reaches of New York state, in a tiny town home to outsized secrets and an unnerving cabal of locals who are protecting them. At the epicenter of it all is the site of a stalled super-collider project, an immense subterranean construction that may have an even deeper, more insidious purpose…
