Come by Capitol Hill Books, across the street from Eastern Market, this Saturday from 4 - 7 pm for it's Second Saturday celebration. There will be wine, cheese, and 10% off all purchases.
If we're lucky, the Admiral will get drunk and recite Omar Khayyam, Rowdy will rock out some Midlake and be snarky to customers, Bouillonnui will graciously offer to do whatever he can to heighten your bookstore experience, and Forever Bisque will gesticulate wildly whilst making bold absurdist pronouncements. Hopefully, Segway cop won't bust the party up too early like he's been known to.
This month's featured dead author is John O'Hara, an American Author from the early 20th century who, like Sherwood Anderson and Johnny Two Steps, was revered up there with Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Faulkner, but has since gone somewhat by the wayside. BUT THAT DON'T MEAN HIS SHIT STILL DON'T ROCK!
So come on by, browse a little, ill a little, pick up a copy of "Rage to Live", it shall be good times.
