Visions of Shoshanah
Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, April 19, 2015
On our evening walk last Saturday the Weaver noted that I don’t often do impulsive things. The next morning, while reading the paper, I remembered that a certain blog-pal of mine was having a book reading that very afternoon. On impulse, I decided to go. Not a big deal you say? After all, there are book events all the time in Minneapolis.
Except this one was located in the ‘mountains’ of eastern Wisconsin—a four and a half hour drive from Flippist World Headquarters.
I pulled in to the coffeehouse/gallery with a few minutes to spare, surprising the author, Shoshanah Lee Marohn, who ushered us into the basement to begin her reading from her Amazon best seller Avoiding Sex with Frenchmen (A Picture Book for Adults):
She had made a little interactive game for us, WYTTFPA (Would you tap that French Person’s ass?) as she showed slides of various characters pictured in her book. Most amusing. After the reading Shoshanah signed books (notice the vintage slide projector):
The crowd made its way up to the shop and talked art. Shoshanah had numerous pieces of art in the gallery. Afterwards, Shoshanah (that's her pen name, her real name is ‘Jojiba’) and I went to The Grumpy Troll, Mount Horeb's finest brewpub, where we discussed art, blogging, and stories of our grandparents:
A most agreeable way to spend an impulsive Sunday.
