The Sign of the Apocalypse
with John Getchell
Please join us as we meet the ever-engaging local folk hero and thoroughly charming John Getchell. John will be giving a talk about his flight of madness," The Sign of the Apocalypse". On occasion, The Sign of the Apocalypse (SOTA) traffics in the earnest, but at its heart is rooted in a deep-seated desire to express the sarcastic and snort-worthy. After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to purchase John’s grimoire on the subject. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Animal Welfare Society of Kennebunk.
