A Book Reading by Rev. Billy, Savitri D & Chicken John at Coney Island

Reverend Billy, Savitri D and Chicken John will be hosting a “boisterous” book reading at Coney Island’s Freakshow on Saturday November 19, 2011 from 7 to 10 pm.

Reverend Billy (Talen)and Savitri D of The Church of Earthalujuah authored The Reverend Billy Project which is “a document of their exploits in standing against the corporatization and commodification of public space and our culture in general”. The Book of the IS: Fail… to WIN! Essays in engineered disperfection is a book from Chicken John Rinaldi which is full of stories and photographs of some of his failed projects. We recently posted about The Book of the IS.

From the Coney Island USA website:

These books address a few things Coney Island lovers know all to well, saving public space, engineering impossible actions, crazy efforts to change the world, creative resistance, and the holy rolling hot rocks of fighting losing battles.
