Austin Peay State University professors and alumni, Dr. Antonio and Dr. Amy Thompson, will be signing copies of their recently published book, “But If a Zombie Apocalypse Did Occur: Essays on Medical, Military, Governmental, Ethical, Economic and Other Implications (Contributions to Zombie Studies)" on Sept. 29 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the Morgan University Center lobby on the University campus.

APSU associate professor of sociology and contributor to the book, Dr. David Steele will also be available at the signing. Light refreshments will also be provided.

Part pop culture trope, part hypothetical cataclysm, the zombie apocalypse is rooted in modern literature, film and mythology. This collection of new essays considers the implications of this scientifically impossible (but perhaps imminent) event, examining real-world responses to pandemic contagion and civic chaos, as well as those from Hollywood and popular culture. The contributors discuss the zombie apocalypse as a metaphor for actual catastrophes and estimate the probabilities of human survival and behavior during an undead invasion.

The book is now available at many major retailers, including Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, as well as mcfarlandbooks.com.
