Talk Book Signing Atria Kennebunk
June 27, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Talk Book Signing Atria Kennebunk: A proven hit with seniors and youngsters and all in-between, the ever-engaging local folk hero and thoroughly charming John Getchell will be giving a talk book signing Atria Kennebunk, talking the talk and signing copies of “The Sign of the Apocalypse” from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.
“Strike While The Irony Is Hot,” “Be The Person You Pretend to be on Facebook,” and “Stop Making Stupid People Famous.” All words to live by and, in Arundel/Kennebunkport, words to drive by.
Join us for a fun afternoon of Sign of the Apocalypse: Ruminations and Wit from an American Roadside Prophet for a Talk Book Signing Atria Kennebunk.
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.
