Signing by Arundel Resident John Getchell @ Graves Memorial Library

December 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Signing of Sign of the Apocalypse by Arundel humorist John Getchell. Friends, neighbors, and passersby from all over the country can’t fail to miss “The Sign’s” constantly changing humor and insight. On occasion, Sign of the Apocalypse traffics in the earnest, but at its heart is rooted in a deep-seated desire to express the sarcastic and snort-worthy. This, and a love of haiku, pizza, Latin, double ententdre, and the worst puns ever crafted is the premise of John Getchell’s book.

Please join us on Saturday, December 9th at 3:00 pm to celebrate the publication of John’s new book. A perfect program to lift your spirits and dare you to slow down and “read the signs.” Books will be available for sale and signed by Mr. Getchell after the event. A fabulous holiday gift for anyone in your life that likes humor, puns, and general contemplation.

Two years in the making, the message on “The Sign” is changed on a daily basis, with the primary benefit of slowing passing traffic to a honking crawl. It was designed to convey pithy tidbits of thought and wordplay. In its conception, SOTA was perpetrated in spite of the objection of the author’s girlfriend, and with hopes of creating controversy and dismay in the local community. The girlfriend packed up and left, and the community and town fathers were surprisingly gruntled by the proceedings.
