BEACONS launch in London

From dear friends Gregory Norminton and Nick Hayes, and the fine folks at Oneworld Publishing — the launch of a book years in the making, from which Gregory read in manuscript form last year at the Wilderness Festival, and which at last arrives in our hot little hands:

You are invited to celebrate the London launch of BEACONS Рstories for our not so distant future. With Rodge Glass, Nick Hayes, Holly Howitt, James Miller & Gregory Norminton. Waterstones Piccadilly,6.30 pm, Tuesday, May 21 2013. Free. Wine. Free wine.

Oh, to be in two places at once. Did they mention the free wine?

FORESTival at A Studio in the Woods

For those in the New Orleans area, A Studio in the Woods is hosting its annual FORESTival this coming Saturday, from 11am-5pm. Always a spectacular day down in the forest, the festival features food, music, art, and photography from some of New Orleans’ finest, and if the rumors are true, a giant puppet second-line courtesy of the Black Forest Fancies Laboratory.

Don’t miss it — no matter how big or little a kid you are.
