This week in drDOCTOR (cue EKG), drDOCTOR is proud to present a very special feature program, The Black Bear Club, Vol. 1. As your medical drDOCTOR, we recommend that you listen to the program immediately and maintain a steady medical dosage of the Black Bear Club as medically as medically appropriate.
The Black Bear Club is a new literary reading series started by our dear friend, friend of the family, friend of drDOCTOR, and country doctor, Howard Parsons. The reading series will feature regional and national fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. We here at drDOCTOR remember when Howard was just a black bear cub (as much as he remembers when us drDOCTORs were just doctors), well before he went and started the Black Bear Club, so we’re very happy to bring you the first meeting of the BBC.
And as if that weren’t enough, drDOCTOR is happy to announce that the Black Bear Club is happy to announce the formation of the Travelin’ Appalachians Revue — a new revue for you to soon be traveling through the appalachians with you. Details and dates below.
Amy Kurzweil is drDOCTOR’s resident doctor of comics and the creator of GutterFACE. Find more on her and view all the episodes of GutterFACE here, and at amykurzweil.com
