“HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!”
READING — SLIDESHOW — BEAR WRESTLING
Spoken-word performance by Famous Author Mykle Hansen,
a special slide presentation,
and a live demonstration of advanced
BEAR SELF-DEFENSE TECHNIQUES!
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 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 book, and deliver an enlightening and
entertaining slideshow on the changing 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!
Please join us for this festive info-promotional lecture, which Hansen and his publishers ERASERHEAD PRESS bring to cities across America beginning in November.
