Story telling & book signing with Gary Every at Bent River Dec. 19

Saturday, Dec. 15, local author Gary Every will perform a storytelling/book signing at Bent River Books and Music from 2- 4 p.m. 

Every is well recognized from his many performances around town, including local slams, Pumphouse Poets and Prose, Poet's Corner, leader of a local writing group, and of course the annual Bob Dylan Birthday bash at Old Town Center for the Arts

His Dec. 15 show at Bent River Books and Music is expected to include plenty of Christmas stories such as the story of the Christmas Truce, Buffalo Bill Santa Claus, Christmas Arizona and the Man Who Killed Santa Claus -- all stories from Mr. Every's book Shadow of the OhshaD, a collection of his award winning journalism columns including the Apache Naichee Ceremony and Losing Geronimo's Language. 

He is also expected to tell some stories from his most recent book Battling the Hydra, encounters with (mostly) wild animals.  Battling the Hydra has tales of whales, being chased by bears, following turkeys, admiring antelope, and recalls the days when yowling saber-toothed cats still roamed the Arizona prairie.

Also an award nominated science fiction writer, Mr. Every will read selections from his two science fiction novellas. Inca Butterflies tells the story of the conquistadors overthrowing the Incan empire using Peruvian folktales. 

These indigenous folktales barely mention the name of the Pizarro brothers but center instead on a pirate named Alejo Garcia and some very dangerous butterflies. 

The Saint and the Robot is the fictionalized retelling of a medieval legend about a young Thomas Aquinas, long before he was a saint, back when he was the prize pupil at a university of alchemy run by the mysterious alchemist Albertus Magnus.
