When a fisherman receives a mysterious letter about his beloved’s demise, he sets off in his skiff to  find her. A whale swallows him, then deposits him on the Isle of the Dead, which is ruled by a trio of giant bird gods.  The fisherman must negotiate with the self-proclaimed leader—a narcissistic, bullying crow—to return his beloved to physical form. In The Alehouse at the End of the World, an epic comedy set in the sixteenth century, bawdy Shakespearian love triangles play out with shape-shifting avian demigods and a fertility goddess, drunken revelry, and bio-dynamic gardening. A raucous, aw-aw-aw-awe-inspiring romp, Stevan Allred’s second book is a juicy fable for adults and a hopeful tale for our troubled times.

Stevan Allred, author of The Alehouse at the End of the World, lives in Portland, Oregon, halfway between Hav and the Isle of the Dead, which is to say he spends as much time burrowed into his imagination as he possibly can.
 
Our musical guest will be Sarah Goodin!
 
Doors open and music begins at 6:30pm.
