A Vanity Fair Hot Type pick and set in Philadelphia, The Resurrectionist is a cross between Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Gray’s Anatomy, and offers two incredible books in one. The first book is a fictional biography of Dr. Spencer Black while the second book is Black’s magnam opus: The Codex Extinct Animalia, an anatomical reference manual of mythological beasts all rendered in meticulously detailed black-and-white anatomical illustrations.

The book launch will feature a gallery showing of Hudspeth’s artwork from the book, a discussion with the author moderated by Jason Rekulak publisher of Quirk Books, followed by a book signing. The event is free and open to the public.

Author E.B. Hudspeth is an artist and author living in New Jersey. The Resurrectionist is his first book.

Moderator Jason Rekulak is the publisher of Quirk Books, a Philadelphia based publishing company. He has acquired and/or conceived some of the company's most successful books, including the international sensation Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the #1 New York Times best seller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and the Edgar® Award winning Last Policeman.
