Charles Fort Birthday Saunter: A Procession of The Damned

The naïve and the pedantic and the bizarre and the grotesque and the sincere and the insincere, the profound and the puerile.
The Book of the Damned

From 4pm, 6 August 2011
Meet outside 39A Marchmont Street, Fort’s home in London, with a reading and toast (ale and cheese optional).

Followed by a swift drink in his honour:
Friend at Hand, 4 Herbrand Street, WC1N 1HX

and after a short saunter and for the sure-footed and brave, the opportunity to write his name across London in pubs:
Old Crown, 33 New Oxford Street, Bloomsbury, London, WC1A 1BH
Royal George, Goslett Yard, Soho, London, WC2H 0EA
Tottenham, 6 Oxford Street, W1D 1AR

All forteans and friends welcome.

"I am a collector of notes upon subjects that have diversity—such as deviations from concentricity in the lunar crater Copernicus, and a sudden appearance of purple Englishmen—stationary meteor-radiants, and a reported growth of hair on the bald head of a mummy—and "Did the girl swallow the octopus?"
