Tue 2/13 @ 2PM & 7PM
“And now, ladies and gentlemen, you are going to see something that will make your eyes POP right out of your head. Because of so-called guardians of public decency we are NOT permitted to describe to you IN ANY WAY the HARDCORE, live MONSTROSITY that we have with us tonight!..It is a sight that will be branded in your minds forever, this loathesome display.”
Classic John Waters dialogue from Multiple Maniacs. Local writer Charles Cassady has always wanted to say that. His new book Crescent Crimes allows that opportunity.
For the 300th anniversary of the city of New Orleans, Cassady will bring to two libraries pages of creepy true tales of murder, magic, mischief and multiple maniacs in and around the French Quarter.
While you mortals spend the Mardi Gras Tuesday cavorting around with beads and harlots, Cassady will be spreading dread and ill will to both east and west sides of this accursed town. At 2pm Cassady speaks at the Mayfield Library. At 7pm he visits the Lakewood Public Library Main Branch.
The Lakewood appearance is especially noteworthy because Cassady dedicated the book to the late Lakewood Library director Ken Warren. Both appearances are free. Cassady’s assorted weird books will be available for sales/signing.
