Alumni Lawn / Old Main (MAIN) Carson Ballroom
Arizona State University, Tempe campus
Look on as a zombie horde chases hapless high school drama students across the ASU campus and into Old Main, where they find sanctuary in Carson Ballroom. After the action, zombie ushers will escort audience members inside Old Main’s Carson Ballroom, where we’ll help launch Sick, Tom Leveen’s latest young adult novel about a group of high school drama misfits who fend off a zombie apocalypse in the school theater.
author Tom Leveen (alive and well)
ASU zombie scholars (all alive):
Leveen will speak and sign books, and ASU scholars will present short programs on zombies in rhetorical analysis, literature, popular culture, and as psychological phenomena.
