Join us as Evanston author Daniel Kraus discusses The Shape of Water – his remarkable new novel that mirrors and extends the story told by Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning film of the same name. Based on an original idea by del Toro and Kraus, The Shape of Water was developed as a bold two-tiered release – one story interpreted by two artists in the independent mediums of film and literature. Kraus will be joined in conversation by author Christa Desir, and copies of The Shape of Water will be available to purchase.
Daniel Kraus is a NY Times bestselling author. In addition to The Shape of Water, he previously collaborated with Guillermo del Toro on the YA novel Trollhunters, which was adapted into the Emmy-winning Netflix series. His novel The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch was named one of Entertainment Weekly’s Top Books of the Year, and his work has been translated into 25 languages. His next novel is The Living Dead, a posthumous collaboration with legendary filmmaker George A. Romero.
Christa Desir is the author of five YA novels including Fault Line, Bleed Like Me, and Other Broken Things. She lives outside Chicago.
