*DIGITAL* Vermont Humor: “I Could Hardly Keep from Laughing”
Norwich Public Library
Author Bill Mares and cartoonist Don Hooper share drawings and tales that illustrate the understatement, comeuppance, and subtlety of Vermont humor. Enjoy this ramble through the decades as the pair show how Vermont’s true character shines in dry (and occasionally tables-turned) jokes and stories.
This event is hosted by the Norwich Public Library and the Norwich Historical Society.
