Publication of Basic Disaster Supplies Kit by Marci Rae Johnson

We are pleased to announce that the wait is over for our newest title. "This collection transitions from uproarious hilarity to poignant contemplation and back again, ultimately leaving the reader aware of human frailty and the questionable state of the universe. Replete with astonishment and wit, Johnson's Basic Disaster Supplies Kit delivers one revelation after the next."--Mary Biddinger
