The Small Press Book Club will be reading Dear Thief by Samantha Harvey on Thursday, March 19th at 7pm.

Harvey’s book is propelled not by the usual structures of novel writing but by the quality of its author’s mind, by the luminousness of her prose, and by an ardent innocence of speculation that is rare in contemporary fiction..."
