First Thursday! BT Livermore

“B is for Beard” by BT Livermore

BT will present pages from his new book, “B is for Beard,” a fully-illustrated, alphabet guide to the wonders of facial hair and the variety of people throughout history who have chosen to wear it. From Annie Jones, a bearded woman who worked with PT Barnum, all the way to the magnificent facial follicles of ZZ Top, “B is for Beard” has it all. Everyone is welcome, even the clean-shaven.
