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.

We will be splitting the hour-long group in to two parts: in the first half we will read and discuss short cartoons and comics, this first half is open for drop-in—no pre-reading necessary! In the second half, the group will discuss pre-assigned comics and discuss them. The group will meet regularly every other Sunday from 7-8:15, it is free and open to the public.
