Chimera Lucida Launch Yesterday

]Yesterday, David Fiore was at the store launching his second book, Chimera Lucida. On top of having a lovely display and delicious chocolates on hand, he explained to a captivated audience the genesis behind his new technodiegetic work.

Amongst various things, we got to learn about the origin of the book's title (a play on words referencing Roland Barthe's Camera Lucida) and about his students' interests in making the world a better place to live in. Fiore also shared with us the importance of emotionally striking moments like that time he stumbled, at night and on campus in Michigan, on a hawk standing on top of a dying rabbit getting ripped to shreds. Gosh, talk about a cover-worthy vision!

Here are a few pictures of the event, enjoy!
