Ramshackle Press presents a special pre-release party for Charlie Parr’s new fiction book Last of the Better Days Ahead, scheduled to launch October 11. Readers are treated to a deep dive into the big picture of a group of Charlie’s songs. Like old, well-hewn gospel songs, there is both darkness and light. There are tales of childhood, families, cantankerous uncles and aunts, and slightly lost individuals. Charlie will read a couple of stories from the book and also play songs from the record Last of the Better Days Ahead, released in 2021 on Smithsonian Folkways.
Tickets are $25 (and include a copy of the new book)
$40 Partner ticket (includes one copy of new book and (2) admissions)
Presented by Ramshackle Press in partnership with the Minnesota Marine Art Museum
