Eric Drooker will be in town this week and he’s puttin’ on a show. He’ll be projecting sequential images from FLOOD! A Novel In Pictures, and also giving a sneak preview of his newest book, Blood Song: A Silent Ballad (from which this story was excerpted.) There will be live, musical accompaniment by the artist and a late-breaking political weather forecast. You get two chances to see, highly recommended!
