As you know, Kool Beanz is a huge supporter of the arts and it's diverse universe. And we're huge fans of artists who are as diverse.
So imagine our surprised joy when we found out that our recurring resident artist was also a published author.
That's right. Bill Delaney, our pop art with artistic flair artist is also a published author. He's admitted to one hard copy novel, and eight Amazon Kindle publications. And it's one of his Amazon Kindle novels he wants to share with us.
He's written his own version of Alice in Wonderland and promises a twist that we're not ready for but will have tons of fun with anyway.
So come to Kool Beanz Saturday, June 16th as Bill reads two chapters from his book "A Twisted Wonderland".
Refreshments will be served and when he's finished amusing us with his two chapters, he's up for answering all your questions ending the night with an invitation to his charity art show in July that's featuring his pop art take on the classic story in original illustration, classic Disney images, and live action movie. But just the first one by Disney.
Wonderland. A world where nonsense rules and logic is a concept that can only be grasped if and when you understand the rules of nonsense. Once upon a time a young girl named Alice ventured into this world and had a series of misadventures. But what if Wonderland was meant to be seen by people other than a little girl?
Lee is a young man with too many issues and not enough therapists or drugs, pharmaceutical or illegal to deal with. He's made many bad decisions based solely on the concept that boredom is not something he can deal with. One day, while with his boyfriend, that concept would bring him to Wonderland. But this Wonderland is both like and unlike anything he's ever known or thought he knew.
Now, trapped in a world he thought he knew, Lee must meet and deal with a variety of characters that defy even nonsense in order to make it from point A to point B, which to him is back home. As he wanders, as well as wonders, he'll meet cynically adult versions of classic characters who want nothing more than to teach him the errors of his ways. Will he learn the lessons they want to teach? Or will he forever be trapped in a world that he soon learns no one ever knew?
