The Starless Sea
In conversation with Rene Denfeld

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus, a timeless love story set in a secret underground world – a place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea.

Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, he uncovers a series of clues that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth.

Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose – in both the mysterious book and in his own life. Tickets are required; ticket purchase includes admission for two, and one copy of The Starless Sea. Tickets are available at
