Believer, Beware in Chicago!
So a transgender cowboy, a pornographer/Bible teacher, and a nostalgic former fundamentalist walk into a bookstore. It’s not a joke; it’s what will happen at Quimby’s Saturday, November 14 at 7 pm when Quince Mountain, Erik Hanson and E.J. Park read their contributions to Believer Beware, edited by Jeff Sharlet and Peter Manseau:“Cowboy for Christ”, “Bible Porn”, and “The Joy of Dissent (Or, Why I Miss Fundamentalism)”, respectively. The second collection from Killing the Buddha, Believer Beware, uncovers “first person dispatches from the margins of faith” and exposes them to the world. As editor Jeff Sharlet describes in his introduction,
Caught between comics and scripture is the stuff of this collection, memoir. Memoir, after all, is euphemistic label for testimony, a cleaned-up manifestation of the comic book sensibility.
Join contributors and Killing the Buddha editors for this Chicago launch of Believer Beware.
