BUY TICKETS HERE! General Admission is $10.00, and Admission plus signed copy of Station Eleven is $26.00. George R.R. Martin will be hosting the evening as Jean Cocteau Cinema presents Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven. Kirsten Raymonde will never forget the night Arthur Leander, the famous Hollywood actor, had a heart attack on stage during a production of King Lear. That was the night when a devastating flu pandemic arrived in the city, and within weeks, civilization as we know it came to an end. Twenty years later, Kirsten moves between the settlements of the altered world with a small troupe of actors and musicians. They call themselves The Traveling Symphony, and they have dedicated themselves to keeping the remnants of art and humanity alive. But when they arrive in St. Deborah by the Water, they encounter a violent prophet who will threaten the tiny band’s existence. And as the story takes off, moving back and forth in time, and vividly depicting life before and after the pandemic, the strange twist of fate that connects them all will be revealed. “Deeply melancholy, but beautifully written, and wonderfully elegiac . . . A book that I will long remember, and return to.” —George R. R. Martin About the Author: Emily St. John Mandel was born in British Columbia, Canada. She is the author of three previous novels—Last Night in Montreal, The Singer’s Gun, and The Lola Quartet—all of which were Indie Next picks. She is a staff writer for The Millions, and her work has appeared in numerous anthologies, including The Best American Mystery Stories 2013 and Venice Noir. She lives in New York City with her husband.

Bio: We weren’t accomplished enough to copy the songs that we heard on the radio, so we had no choice but to make up our own”, says Jono Manson of his first band which he formed in 1968, at the age of seven. So began the career of this prolific singer/songwriter and veteran performer. Manson began playing professionally in his early teens, in the dirty 1970’s dive bars of his native NYC. He has since performed everywhere from Max’s Kansas City to Madison Square Garden, from house concerts to festival stages and has amassed an impressive recorded catalog which includes major-label releases as both recording artist and producer. His songs have been recorded by Grammy-winners and have been featured in major motion pictures, on network television and in national advertising campaigns. Jono continues to collaborate with a wide range of artists as a co-writer and producer, and as a member of an array of side projects, such as Brothers Keeper, Manstein (with songwriter/composer Donald Rubinstein), The Whateverly Bros. (with UK singer/songwriter George Breakfast), his duo project with percussionist Wally Ingram, and The Duskray Troubadours (with John Popper). He also owns and operates The Kitchen Sink recording studio in his adopted home of Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he has twice been named “Producer of the Year” by the New Mexico Music Awards

Meet Misty Lee – a Creeper in a Corset. Magician, Séance Medium, Professional Voice Actress, and Writer – Misty Lee is renowned for her saucy brand of sorcery and sophisticated stage illusion. Shows will be: Friday, February 10th Saturday, February 11th Sunday, February 12th “I’ve always had a case of the bold.” Raised in Detroit near notorious 8-Mile —the world where Eminem’s fictional movie was set— Misty credits her ‘school of hard knocks’ upbringing as inspiring her macabre sense of humor and interest in the so-called “dark arts.” She began performing magic when she was just sixteen but was quickly disillusioned by the ever-shrinking costumes given to her by the local talent dispatch. “I wanted magic to be more than just sparkles, skin, and pointing at things.” She tried to swear off magic, but her Musical Theater and Improv backgrounds proved a fertile ground for magic. “It followed me,” Lee says. “Magic for me is like a tick – it dug right in, and it refuses to let go.” Misty’s no-nonsense approach to prestidigitation, her creativity, and her affinity for fearlessly speaking her mind has honed her career, and has won her both respect and friends among magic’s best and brightest.
