IRONTON — Consigned Books, 221 S. 3rd St., Ironton, will host a book signing by award-winning illustrator Quintin Gleim, a Franklin Furnace, Ohio, native.
The book signing will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Monday, May 28, at the downtown book store.
Gleim, who received a BFA from Shawnee State University in 2017 and currently studies at the Columbus College of Art and Design in pursuit of an MFA, will be signing copies of the book, “L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 34.”
Gleim was one of 24 winners from the international science fiction and fantasy contest – 12 writers and 12 artists, out of a field of more than 5,000 entrants from over 170 countries. Each writing and illustrating contest winner was presented their trophy by contest judges at the ceremony and combined cash prizes and royalties of over $30,000, and their story with artwork published in “L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Volume 34.”
Growing up in the forests of southern Ohio, Gleim was transfixed by stories of fantasy and science fiction from early childhood. He is hard at work creating images for his illustrated novel set in a post-apocalyptic American West, populated by fantasy creatures, dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts.
