Book Talk/Signing Johns Hopkins Barnes & Noble

“I’ll be at Johns Hopkins bookstore on December 7, at 7:00 p.m. to sign copies of my illustrious tome, “Sign of the Apocalypse”, and to offer my opinions on why Baltimore has the most attractive populous on the continent. Come, join the revelry; may it spill into the streets of Balto like water in the rain…”

Friends, neighbors, and passersby traveling on River Road in Arundel, ME can’t fail to miss John Getchell’s Sign of the Apocalyse, a roadside attraction with 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. The roadside prophet visits to impart wisdom and sign books.

“Whoever did this is a genius.”–James Corden
