john getchell with the sign of the apocalpyse

John Getchell meet and greet and sign at UPenn Bookstore.

“John Getchell is a writer, humorist, and performance artist and we are delighted to welcome him this holiday season. He will be meeting guests and signing copies of his new book, SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE.”– UPenn Bookstore

Come on out and bring your Benjamin Franklins! The book makes a perfect holiday gift for the lover of humor in your life. SOTA loves you, Philadelphia!

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.
