Catherynne M. Valente and S. J. Tucker

S.J. Tucker & Catherynne M. Valente

Once upon a time in 2006, at a science fiction convention in New York, author Catherynne M. Valente (the Fairyland series, Space Opera, Deathless) introduced herself to unsuspecting songwriter S. J. Tucker.

Soon after, they hit the road as fast friends to share combined book launch-concert performances across North America. These shared shows often combined art auctions and guest dancers or circus arts acts with live music from Sooj & readings from Cat, and they ran from October 2006 to October 2013, across road maps, train tracks, and many a narrative arc.

It’s with a great deal of joy that these two fairytale ambassadors come to Online Concert Thing, their powers combined once more, to share that old roadshow goodness with you, across the internet. Cat will present readings from her various award winning works, and Sooj will pair those readings with songs of hers which Cat’s stories have inspired, such as “Firebird’s Child”, “Not the Villain”, or “Girl with the Lion’s Tail”.
