Author Event With Benjamin Percy: "The Ninth Metal"

Books With Friends - Lakeville Heritage Library

Benjamin Percy is an award-winning, genre-bending novelist, comics writer and screenwriter. He is the author of seven novels — including this year's Books with Friends selection The Ninth Metal, the first novel in his riveting sci-fi, crime and superhero Comet Cycle trilogy. In this gut-punch of a novel, the first in his Comet Cycle, Ben lays bare how a modern-day goldrush has turned the middle of nowhere into the center of everything, and how one family-the Frontiers-hopes to control it all. 

Ben writes Wolverine, X-Force, and Ghost Rider for Marvel Comics. He has also written for DC Comics, AWA Studios, and Dynamite Entertainment and is known for his celebrated runs on Green Arrow, Devil's Highway, Teen Titans, Year Zero, Nightwing, and James Bond. 

He co-wrote the film Summering, which made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival. His fiction and nonfiction have been published in Time, GQ, Esquire, Outside, Men's Journal, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Paris Review. His honors include the Whiting Award, an NEA fellowship, two Pushcart Prizes, the iHeart Radio Award for Best Scripted Podcast, and inclusion in Best American Short Stories.

Join us for an interesting evening in discussion with the author and a book signing. Books will be available for purchase from Content Booksellers at the event.
