Pen vs Sword VI: Point Taken
March 17 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Hosted By: Shire of Angels Keep
Tis a simple thing to take a man’s life with a Sword, and once it’s done, it’s done, but when a man’s life is eviscerated by the Pen, it remains that way for eternity. Last year, the Pen won. Sword: consider this a challenge.
The Shire of Angels Keep will once again celebrate the art of the Pen and the arte of the Sword on March 17th 2018 and attempt to answer the age-old question; Which is mightier, the pen or the sword?
Join us to discover the answer at the Auburn United Methodist Church, 99 South St, Auburn NY. Site will open at 9am, and the first classes will start at 10am. Classes and the event will end at 5pm.
