The 2012-13 Bloody Thursday continues on November 15th with with a presentation by Shawn Bowman, AKA Miss Demeanor, author of the delightful and playfully informative Criminal Crafts.

“Former professional chef and current crafter and writer extraordinaire, Shawn Bowman dallied in a promising East Coast film career, but decided to chuck it away to raise a demanding and ungrateful family and an ill-tempered dog. Attached to her glue gun in a meaningful yet painful way, she spends her days skulking in Portland, Oregon, writing, making stuff, and drinking awesome beer.

Her book, Criminal Crafts: Outlaw Projects for Scoundrels, Cheats, and Armchair Detectives, brings together illicit behavior and artistic expression with dark humor in this do-it-yourself project book. Bowman focuses on original crafts and recipes themed in noir, murder, retro espionage, pulp fiction, mafia, and voodoo.

The meeting will take place at Terwilliger Plaza, opening with a reception at 7:00pm, with the presentation at 7:30pm. All meetings are free and open to the public. Learn more at our Bloody Thursdays page.
