the BOOK TOUR...continues...

Brother Void is still bookstore-and-campus-hopping around the country with his comic church service & (very) unusual book reading:

In a performance described as "stand-up tragedy," the book becomes a holy text, the author, a tormented prophet, and the audience, a mantra-intoning congregation. Individual volunteers come forward for "affliction therapy" and "existential baptism." [sample program]

Invite Brother Void to your campus or city.
