Brazos Bookstore will host a multi-media event to celebrate the launch of Chris Cander’s third novel, The Weight of a Piano. Instead of a traditional book reading, Cander has written a brief stage play that interprets three key scenes from the novel. The play will be directed by local director Elizabeth Keel, and performed by renowned local actors Bonnie Langthorn, Ian Lewis, Robert Meek, Tasha Gorel, and Blake Jackson. In addition, Konner Scott, the musician who composed the original piece of music that appears at the end of The Weight of a Piano, will debut “Die Reise” as well as perform other pieces that appear in the novel.

After the performance, Cander will appear in conversation with author and bookseller Mark Haber. There will also be a drawing to take home one of eight 11x14 canvas prints of images that Cander took during her research trip to Death Valley National Park.
