Brock Clarke at Wordsmiths

Written on October 31, 2007 at 2:54 pm, by Lain Shakespeare

Every other century or so, someone writes a book about house museums.

Luckily, this time around that person was Brock Clarke, author of An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England. He’s coming to Wordsmiths in Decatur, courtesy of that very bookstore, y’all’s truly, and Baby Got Books.

Housewarming: Brock Clarke Visits Wordsmiths

An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes of New England is chilling, scorching, and devastatingly funny. Take it from me– I just finished it this morning. It’s as quick as it is literary*, and definitely a story worth your attention.

Look here for further proof: (praise) (first chapter) (blog).

But don’t get too excited! Neither run nor walk to your closest bookstore!  Instead, hang out with us at Wordsmiths on the 19th and buy your copy there.

* Literary, but in a good way. Promise.

  1. […] While there’s a whole laundry list of things I’m afraid of, there are two that really shine in the house museum context. The first, arson, will be well covered next week, so I won’t get into that here. […]

  2. […] Check out co-sponsor Baby Got Books’ review right here, our fancy poster and more information here, and then join us at Wordsmiths, tonight at 6:30! Oh, and bring some dough to buy the book. We’ll pay you back in hummus. […]

  3. […] Wordsmiths could have fizzled out this month and closed its doors with a whimper like so many small, noble businesses.  Which would’ve been a shame.  Who else was going to help us host an event about burning down house museums? […]

  4. […] ATL: What’s Inside the Wren’s Nest That Other Time JTrav Designed a Poster for One of Our Events That Time JTrav Took Pictures for Don’t Forget That […]
