Join us as we celebrate the release of Section 130, the debut short story collection from Katrinka Mannelly. Based on the Dewey Decimal System designation for the supernatural, it contains everything from witches to mermaids, gnomes to poltergeists. Mannelly is enamored with the inhabitants of section 130, but the wonders of childhood have given way to cynical adulthood. Each story explores a modern human-supernatural being exchange. Sirens, fey, Sasquatch, Jinn, demons, ghosts, zombies, even tooth fairies in training, and lake monsters have truths to tell us about who we are as people.
Section 130 is Katrinka Mannelly's first foray into fiction, but she has been scripting museum projects for 23 years. She started developing content and writing for museums in 1994 and has since worked for over 30 museums, zoos, and aquariums. Her writing has appeared in museums across the country including the Smithsonian, National Museum of Natural History, Washington, D.C. She has contributed to authoring educational CD-ROMs and web sites, including allterrainbrain.org.
