Bit of an update
Well, here at the Green Hand, things are proceeding apace. Books arrive on an almost daily basis, and the shelves are mostly filled to capacity. Joy! So many tasty tomes. Of late we've had an influx which includes lots of William Gibson, Jonathan Lethem, Bret Easton Ellis, Jack Kerouac, Robert Jordan, and many, many more.
Meanwhile, the star new arrival is my book, Strange Maine: True Tales from the Pine Tree State, published by the History Press, which is now available in shop. We're having a celebratory book launch and signing on Thursday, May 27, from 6:00-9:00pm here at the Green Hand, 661 Congress Street in Portland, Maine. Do come in for some fun!
June promises to be an exciting month as well, and we'll kick it off with a new artshow, Steampunk Chronicles, featuring the work of members of the Maine Illustrators Collective, a stellar bunch of artists if there ever was one! Just look at their member roster, a menu of purveyors of a veritable buffet of visual delights.
Any closet steampunk who wishes to come to our First Friday opening, June 4, 2010, from 5:00-8:00, is welcome, indeed invited, to arrive in their own steampunk garb and costumery. It should be a fun evening, and we're all looking forward to it. Image shown below is an early look at a piece being done by Joel Rivers for the steampunk show.
