Bears in the roadway! Ashland, Oregon!

January 9, 2009

Greetings from Ashland, Oregon!  Vacation home of William Shakespeare, fine-dining capital of the greater Medford area, vacation meth destination and an all-around charming rural hamlet. Plus, it’s bear country!

The HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME! World Tour of North America is about to lose the feeling in its second leg. Our final appearance is tonight at Stillwater, in Ashland, Oregon.  Come see the show that freaked out San Francisco and made Claremont uncomfortable!  Information, entertainment, literature, music, feats of strength, alcoholic beverages and a special guest appearance by Black Rock City’s favorite band, THE BAD MINTONS!  See it before it’s gone!

You know the score.  Here’s the details for your friends:


“Help! A Bear Is Eating Me!” at Stillwater –
Book reading, slideshow and bear wrestling.

January 9, 2009 — 9pm sharp!

Stillwater Bar, Restuarant & Venue
1951 Highway 66, Ashland


A reading by author Mykle Hansen,
a special slideshow on bears in North America,
and a live demonstration of advanced


Global warming and the expansion of North America’s population are bringing bears and humans together with unprecedented frequency.  What is the future of our relationship with these awesome creatures?  Must we eat one another?  Can’t we all just get along?

Portland, Oregon author MYKLE HANSEN addresses that question among others in his new novel HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME! — a schadenfreude-laden farce of American hubris in the face of Nature and her servants, specifically the wild bears of Alaska.

During his one-hour presentation, Mr. Hansen, a fixture of Portland’s literary and spoken-word scenes, will read from his new novel and deliver an enlightening and entertaining slideshow on the shifting dynamic of the human-bear relationship in this era of global warming, economic meltdown and obesity.

This will be followed by a brief but exciting demonstration of how to defend yourself against attack by an actual live bear in a natural setting!
