This is the end of the world, NOVEMBER 18th, 7:30 PM at Five Myles – be there or be square! this will be a reading that also serves as a round cracked mirror to reflect and refract our times. this will be a book launch and also a party, a site of glorious unfurling apocalypse. bring books, pens & bodies.
