On Sunday, July 3, from 5-8 p.m., at the Counterpath tent at City Park Jazz, CAConrad will readi the Dakini Oracle Tarot, which he has been doing for 32 years. This deck was invented by Bay Area Tarot Goddess Penny Slinger in the 1970s and is a study in comparative religions. To celebrate the publication of the new Counterpath book Circle M, CA will be giving short tarot readings.
Christine Wertheim’s new book with Counterpath, The Book of Me, will also be released at this event, with discounted copies available.
CAConrad’s childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for his mother and helping her shoplift. He is the author of eight books of poetry and essays, the latest, ECODEVIANCE: (Soma)tics for the Future Wilderness (Wave Books), is the winner of the 2015 Believer Magazine Book Award. He is a Pew Fellow and has also received fellowships from Lannan Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Headlands Center for the Arts, Banff, and Ucross.
