A Little More:
If you thought the Ipswich Museum was a serious, solemn place, think again. “The Outsidah” is about to mess it all up.
Ipswich humorist Doug Brendel will speak at the museum’s Brown Bag lunch onMonday, November 4, beginning at noon.
The Ipswich Chronicle columnist and author of the cartoon-illustrated Only in Ipswichbook series will read from his funniest “Outsidah” columns. “Hearing them, you avoid the cartoons,” Doug says. “They’re even worse than the columns.”
He will also offer a sneak preview of his upcoming book Ipswich Unzipped, and offer his typically off-beat commentary on life in small-town New England from the standpoint of a newcomer. (Unzipped will be launched the day after Thanksgiving at a MiXtMedia Gallery event in Ipswich.)
Doug will have his first two Only in Ipswich books available for purchase and autographs at the Brown Bag lunch. “While supplies last,” he adds. “Don’t forget to say ‘while supplies last.’ We’re trying desperately to start a rush. We need to make room in the basement.”
What, you thought the Ipswich Museum was closed by November? “I did,” Doug says, “I confess.” Think again. Only their guided tours finish in October. The Museum’s regular schedule of lectures, lunches, school programs, and special events continue throughout the fall, winter, and spring.
