PA – Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero Signing

Michael DeForge and Sadie Dupuis appear at Brickbat Books on Thursday, March 23 at 7:00 PM for a live reading and book signing as he introduces the world to Sticks Angelica, Folk Hero. Sticks has escaped her heritage for the refuge of the woods and through her story, DeForge delivers another deeply humane work, one that subtly questions the integrity of the political state and contemporary journalism, all while investigating our relationship to the natural world.
