Believers in Baltimore, Beware
Wednesday, March 24th, 2010, 7 pm – 9:00 pm
The Brewer’s Art, 1106 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD
What do you get when a grown-up Catholic girl, a Bible pornographer, and the avatar of a cut-and-run Jew walk into a bar?
Find out at Brewer’s Art in Baltimore on March 24th when Killing the Buddha hosts a reading in celebration of its latest anthology, Believer, Beware: First-Person Dispatches from the Margins of Faith (Beacon, 2009). The evening will feature readings from Believer, Beware contributors Mary Valle, Erik Hanson, as well as Michael B. Sullivan reading on behalf of Hasdai Westbrook, with plenty of brewed-on-the-premises beer on hand.
Believer, Beware is a collection of true confessions, skeptical testimonies, and personal revelations of religion lost, found and then lost again. Library Journal in a starred review, says Believer, Beware is “shocking, exhilarating, and never dull…. Highly recommended.” Publishers Weekly describes it as “smart, candid, and insightful…. The voices are refreshingly honest.”
