Miller Cane: A True and Exact History

Last week, the Inlander began printing a serialized version of Miller Cane, the latest novel from Spokane author Samuel Ligon (Among the Dead and Dreaming). Half a chapter in and it’s already an absorbing piece of American gothic, the story of a con man who travels the country profiting off the survivors of mass shootings. (See page 23 to read the latest installment.) If you’re hanging on the edge of your seat to see what’s in store for Cane, you can get a sneak peek when Ligon and an impressive roster of other local writers — Anthony Flinn, Melissa Huggins, Leyna Krow, Kate Lebo, Chelsea Martin, Laura Read and Shawn Vestal — read upcoming passages from the book. It’s free to get in, there will be wine and beer on hand, and there’s also going to be a free cereal bar. (Get it? Because the novel is serialized?) — NATHAN WEINBENDER
