Jenna Black

When: Tue., June 1, 7 p.m. 2010

"Women" has been spelled "womyn" to distance the word from patriarchal connotations. Similarly, proponents of "faerie" have reclaimed its rightful historical spelling from the commonly used (and abused) "fairy." Fantasy and paranormal author Jenna Black comes down on the traditional side with her latest work, Glimmerglass. The first in the Faeriewalker series, the novel concerns the magical world of Avalon, where humans and faeries alike dwell. Main character Dana Hathaway journeys there to find her absentee father, but plans go awry when she discovers that she can travel between the earthly and faerie realms (hence the term "faeriewalker"). Known for her various urban fantasy series, Black resides in Pittsboro and graduated from Duke with degrees in French and anthropology. —Sarah Ewald
