Hey! On Thursday, June 9, you should totally stop by Boswell Book Company for a sure-to-be hilarious, insightful, and face-melting free shindig with comedian/author/musician Dave Hill. Hill’s new book, Dave Hill Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, “explores his increasingly close relationship with his recently widowed father in a series of painfully funny essays you will want to read again and again by the fire, at the beach, in a truck stop men’s room, or just about anywhere.” It’s really good.
Making the deal even sweeter (we hope) is the fact that the event is co-sponsored by Milwaukee Record, and will feature Hill in conversation with co-editor and co-founder Matt Wild—who, unlike Hill, has never been to prison. Stop by next Thursday at 7 p.m. to find out more (and RSVP via Facebook here.)
