The Book of Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God chronicles the darkly comic misadventures of a modern messiah who founds a new world religion. In Haroldism there is no city, no shrine more holy than Austin, Texas.
Join me and friends in celebrating the paperback release of The Book of Harold, the Illegitimate Son of God from Soft Skull Press. Fine local beer! Cheap box wine! Haroldian Blessings! An introduction from Bookpeople’s Reverend Kester Smith! A special message from the Austin Chronicle’s own Reverend Wayne Allen Brenner! And a reading, signing and Q & A with me, the Right Reverend Owen Egerton.
This is the first event of a eight city book tour stretching from Austin, through LA and up the west coast to Olympia, Washington. Jodi and I (plus our) two kids Arden (7) and Oscar (3) will be traveling via train across the country hitting bookstores and bars to spread the gospel of Harold.
So come on down on to the best book store in Texas for a night of literature, toasting and fond farewells!
“I can’t remember a word any of us said, only the buzzing joy that we were together and in Austin.” The Book of Harold
