7-9pm : Joe Hill & Bitter Pill in the 2nd Floor Gallery
Joe Hill is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Heart-Shaped Box. His novel, Horns, was made into a feature film starring Daniel Radcliffe, and his book NOS4A2 is forthcoming as a TV series from AMC. His book of short stories, 20th Century Ghosts, won the Bram Stoker Award and British Fantasy Award for Best Collection. His most recent work, Strange Weather, is a collection of four short novels. Joe will do a short reading, Q&A, and book signings.
Bitter Pill plays a dark and anachronistic combination of bluegrass, country, vaudeville and psychobilly. They just released their critically-acclaimed first album, “Prepare Your Throats,” a collection of traditional and original songs from the soundtrack of their staging of William Shakespeare’s grotesquely ridiculous abomination of a play, “Titus Andronicus”, which NHPR called “Exhilarated. Stimulated.” There will also be literary readings and open mic poetry.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children/seniors in advance, and $13/$8 at the door.
Proceeds from the event will help raise funds for the Exeter LitFest and the 2019 Exeter Arts & Music Fest.
