Okay, he’ baaaa-ack. John Getchell’s Talk and Book Signing at Graves Memorial Library will take place! Originally scheduled for December, the talk, the signing, and the author have been resurrected and will take their place of a Sunday, on April 8, 2018, at 2:00 p.m.
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 entendre, and the worst puns ever crafted is the premise of John Getchell’s book.

Books will be available for sale and signed by Mr. Getchell after the event. A fabulous 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.
