speaking & signing
Tonight Austin author Mark Falkin brings his new novel to BookPeople, Contract City. Set in 2021 in the fully privatized city of Tulsa, OK, this is the story of a film student who sets off to discover who is behind mysterious graffiti tags in town, a mission that leads her to the city's home-grown mega-church and the movements of a growing camp of homeless citizens parked just beyond Tulsa’s comfort and security.
