Book Talk with Dale Brumfield!

  • Chop Suey Books 2913 W. Cary Street (map)

Join us for a book reading and signing with local author Dale Brumfield, author of Theme Park Babylon. Free and open to the public.

About the book: "The memo just came out ... everything's gone crazy."

Spend a bad day with new employee Dale and his behind-the-scenes mentors in amusement park rides maintenance as they make no attempt to salvage the remaining ragged dignity of this family-owned amusement park, a self-described mashup of birthday party and torture chamber, where animals run for their lives, ride safety is questionable at best and the water is always polluted.

"I had no thoughts or memories of Burkewood Fun Park that did not include something horrific, bizarre, stupid or dangerous. I was dead inside." And learn the secret of stepping off a moving Carousel without killing yourself.
