Roy Scranton: We're Doomed Now What?

Weller's welcomes back Roy Scranton to the store! He'll be reading selections from his latest, WE'RE DOOMED, NOW WHAT? An American Orwell for the age of Trump, Roy Scranton faces the unpleasant facts of our day with fierce insight and honesty. We’re Doomed. Now What? penetrates to the very heart of our time. Our moment is one of alarming and bewildering change—the breakup of the post-1945 global order, a multispecies mass extinction, and the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it. Not one of us is innocent, not one of us is safe. Now what? WE'RE DOOMED. NOW WHAT? addresses the crisis that is our time through a series of brilliant, loving, and original essays on climate change, war, literature, and loss, from one of the most provocative and iconoclastic minds of his generation. Whether writing about sailing through the melting Arctic, preparing for Houston’s next big storm, watching Star Wars, or going back to the streets of Baghdad he once patrolled as a soldier, Roy Scranton handles his subjects with the same electric, philosophical, demotic touch that he brought to his groundbreaking New York Times essay, “Learning How to Die in the Anthropocene.” ROY SCRANTON is the author of WAR PORN and LEARNING TO DIE IN THE ANTHROPOCENE, and co-editor of FIRE AND FORGET: SHORT STORIES FOR THE LONG WAR. His journalism, essays, and fiction have been published in The Nation, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Boston Review, and elsewhere. He holds a PhD in English from Princeton and an MA from the New School for Social Research and teaches in the Department of English at the University of Notre Dame. The reading will be followed by a signing.

AIKO

Aiko is a band of musical brothers forged in Nashville Tennessee in 1984 in the spirit of the great jam band masters, the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. As with their forebears, Aiko fuses various elements of American rock, folk, psychedelia, country and bluegrass into lengthy instrumental jams. Aiko is made up of an eclectic group of musicians from around the country. The four original band members, Steve Ballenger (lead guitar/vocals), Ross Mason (drums), Ben Anderson (bass/vocals) and Ted Pattison (guitar/voals) were joined in the late '90's by three additional musicians: Steve Krafft (lead guitar/vocals), Lance Deal (drums) and Stu Manning (keyboards/vocals). Aiko has played to crowds at bars, amphitheaters and festivals around the U.S. for the last 33 years. They were the original house band at the iconic 12th & Porter in Nashville and have frequently played other legendary stages in and around Nashville, Dallas, Cleveland, San Francisco and many other great cities over the years. Often playing three or four sets of free-flowing dance music over five or six hours, Aiko's core, loyal fans continue to follow them to wherever "the bus" takes them.
