Tue 11/13 7pm-8pm Alex Granados reads from his horror novel Cemetery Plot The apocalypse isn't all it's cracked up to be. When Vanessa Hawthorne woke up at the end of the world, she expected to be one of the undead... and to have company. Instead Vanessa wakes up in a near-future America where graveyards are as plentiful as strip malls and a real-estate tycoon is after her for the technology she doesn't even know she hides. Cemetery Plot is a farcical romp through a future where the undead are part of a money-making scheme. The past and the future collide and bring together an undead medium with the three people responsible for the end of the world. Throw a mad scientist into the mix and you have a time-traveling apocalyptic prophecy for the modern money-obsessed world. Alex Granados is a producer for The State of Things on North Carolina Public Radio WUNC and the North Raleigh News Columnist for the News & Observer. He lives in Raleigh with his wife Mandy and his dog Zoey.
