Dot Ask, Dot Tell: An Overview of European Geomancy

The term “Geomancy” describes a range of earth-based divinatory practices from different times and places. This presentation will focus on European Geomancy, an astrologically-based divination method largely based on the work of the Renaissance mage Cornelius Agrippa. Please bring some change to use for divination (a penny, nickle, dime, or quarter). You will also need paper and a pen or pencil. An interesting and enlightening evening will be had by all!

David is the author of two plays produced Off-Broadway, and has also written for radio and television. His novel,Husbands and Lap Dogs Breathe Their Last was published by Mainly Murder Press. His short story, Leftovers, was a winner of the Mystery Times 2015 competition, and is featured in an anthology of winning stories from Buddhapuss Ink. He is a graduate of the Master of Fine Arts: Creative Writing program at Goddard College. David lives in Chicago.
