Weirde Sister Release Party! at Xhurch on 10/15

admin—September 25, 2016




James Gendron’s sophomore collection with Octopus Books, WEIRDE SISTER, will be officially released this year on Halloween. But the best, most fun, most magical way to get the book is before then, at the official WEIRDE SISTER release party on Saturday, 10/15 at Xhurch. Join us to celebrate Jack’s second book with tarot readings, face painting, prophetic insights, live music, poetry readings, a DJ, and a reading by the poet of WEIRDE SISTER himself.

WEIRDE SISTER is a historical epic tragedy in verse based on beliefs and narratives dating to the European witch persecutions, which unfolded over three centuries and claimed an estimated 50,000. It is a long poem on the subject of witches, witchcraft, witch persecutions, and whether Hell is really as hot as they say.
