Gayle Brandeis is the author of several acclaimed books, including The Art of Misdiagnosis, which received a starred review in Kirkus."

This event also includes Tony Gilkyson, noted singer-songwriter (X, the Dave Alvin Band, Lone Justice, and solo CDs), who will debut new songs based on Twentynine Palms.

Deanne Stillman's books include Blood Brothers (starred review, Kirkus, Ohioana Book Award); Desert Reckoning (Spur Award, praised in Newsweek); Mustang (LA Times "best book of the year," recipient of California Book Award silver medal), and Twentynine Palms (LA Times "best book of the year," now under option for film). 

Gayle Brandeis is the author, most recently, of the novel in poems, Many Restless Concerns (Black Lawrence Press), longlisted for the Bram Stoker Award, and the memoir The Art of Misdiagnosis (Beacon Press). It received a starred review in Kirkus, Booklist, and ForeWord Reviews.
