December 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

sign of the apocalypseCape Porpoise, or Kennebunkport? You decide. Join author John Getchell for a signing of Arundel’s world-wide sensation (okay, Northeast U.S.-wide) Sign of the Apocalypse. Books will be available for sale for your personal, or holiday gifting enjoyment. Bradbury’s, because it’s always cocktail hour, somewhere, on Saturday afternoon. They have a liquor store!

John Getchell is a writer, humorist, and performance artist and we are delighted to have discussing and signing copies of his new book, SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE.

Friends, neighbors, and passersby from all over the country can’t fail to miss “The Sign’s” constantly changing humor and insight. On occasion, The Sign of the Apocalypse (SOTA) traffics in the earnest, but at its heart is rooted in a deep-seated desire to express the sarcastic and snort-worthy. This, and a love of haiku, pizza, Latin, double entendre, and the worst puns ever crafted.

Two years in the making, the message on “The Sign” is changed on a daily basis, with the primary benefit of slowing passing traffic to a honking crawl. It was designed to convey pithy tidbits of thought and wordplay. In its conception, SOTA was perpetrated in spite of the objection of the author’s girlfriend, and with hopes of creating controversy and dismay in the local community. The girlfriend packed up and left, and the community and town fathers were surprisingly gruntled by the proceedings.
