The spirit of Hallowe’en continues when debut author Allison Moon visits on Thursday, November 3. Readers are invited to find out what defines a feminist werewolf, and what inspired her coming of age novel tale of college freshman Lexie, Lunatic Fringe. Allison will also talk about new media, the traits she sees shared by feminism and self-publishing, and the reasons behind her choice to self-publish, as well as sex (she is also a sex educator and scholar), and socially conscious lesbian werewolves.
New author Allison Moon indulges the feminine wild by giving the classic werewolf myth a feminist lesbian twist. Lexie Clarion is nervous about college. She's plagued with beastly visions, local werewolf attacks are on the rise, and she really wants to kiss a girl. And classes haven't even started yet.
Things start looking up when she meets the Pack, a group of radical women who have their own methods for handling the werewolf menace. Fascinated by their politics, intimacy, and general bad-assery, Lexie's sure she wants to join them, until an accident brings a captivating stranger into her life: Archer, a rugged woman with heterochromatic eyes and a dark secret.
The Pack will go to brutal lengths to win Lexie's favor, but they underestimate Archer's love. As Archer and the Pack battle for Lexie's allegiance, the waxing moon illuminates old hatreds, new enemies, and a secret from Lexie's childhood that will change her life forever.
