Event

Christopher Moore at Boswell Book Company
This event is co-sponsored by Theatre Gigante, which will open for Christopher Moore, presenting a short play at 6:45 pm.

Get ready for a night of raucous hilarity with one of the most entertaining authors you'll ever meet as Christopher Moore returns to Milwaukee to present The Serpent of Venice, his latest novel and the sequel to Fool. The Serpent of Venice is another satirical take on the Bard of Avon starring everybody's favorite fool, Pocket of Dog Snogging, in a glorious and farcical mashup of William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe.

The cost of each ticket includes taxes and fees, admission for one person to the event, and a signed hardcover copy of The Serpent of Venice. Theatre Gigante is co-sponsoring this event. There is a $20 gift card option in lieu of the book on the night of the event only.

In their starred rave review Library Journal sums up The Serpent of Venice best:  "Add one part Merchant of Venice, one part Othello, a dash of Edgar Allan Poe, and a ghost (there's always a bloody ghost), and season liberally with Moore's sardonic wit, and you have a recipe for a laugh-out-loud good time that would leave Shakespeare himself chuckling. Fans of Fool will be overjoyed to rejoin Pocket and company (his apprentice Drool, his puppet Jones, and his monkey Jeff) for their latest adventure, and newcomers will find that Shakespeare isn't nearly as dry and dusty as they thought, at least not when Moore is at the helm."
