We're happy to announce that the next Greasy Goose Salon will be happening at the store this Wednesday June 1st at 7pm! The theme of this event will be... MAPS! And for the occasion, we are putting all of our map themed books on sale the night of the event.
This event will be featuring the following speakers:
*Sean Michaels, "The Lizard, the Catacombs, and the Clock: The Story of Paris's Most Secret Underground Society"
*Larissa Muzzy, "How to be Map Savvy"
*Joël Thibert, "The Right Not to be Mapped"
*Shane Watt, "Folding Memories and Paper Places: The Semi-fictional World of Shane Watt"
If you're unfamiliar with it, the Greasy Goose Salon is an informal community lecture series that provides a forum for people to present their work or ideas in a friendly, community-minded atmosphere. Each event is based around a broad theme and features speakers approaching the topic from various perspectives: artist talks, academic-style presentations, political lectures, literature readings, public speaking, short workshops, etc. We've hosted the Greasy Goose a few times in the past and, as you can see in the pictures above, it's always been a blast - don't miss this!
This event is free and open to the public. For more info, check out the GGS Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/g
