Sean Beaudoin - Welcome Thieves

Join us for a rollicking evening's reading with Sean Beaudoin and his new story collection Welcome Thieves. In twelve virtuoso stories, Beaudoin trains his absurdist's eye on the ridiculous perplexities of adult life. From muddling through after the apocalypse ("Base Omega Has Twelve Dictates") to the knowing smirk of  "You Too Can Graduate with a Degree in Contextual Semiotics," Beaudoin's stories are edgy and profane, bittersweet and angry, bemused and sardonic. Yet they're always tinged with heart. Guest author appearances by Peter Mountford (A Young Man's Guide To Late Capitalism, The Dismal Science) and Johnathan Evison (This Is Your Life, Harriett Chance, West of Here.)

 Beers to follow downstairs in the Pub at Third Place.
