Holiday signing with Arthur Black

Posted: Friday, December 7, 2007

Attend a book signing with Arthur Black, author of Black to the Grindstone ($19.95, Harbour Publishing) at Salt Spring Books, on Friday December 14 at 10am.

With Black to the Grindstone, the bestselling author and three-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, proves once again that, without a doubt, you only get better with age. From an unexpected drag race to a Google search for a picture of "Arthur the Meek," you just never know when a regular day is going to turn into comedic genius. Black provides uproarious insight into uses a matador might have for a teacup, mango or simply some paper towel, the lengths one might go to defend the aural mishearing we've believed in for far too long and the bitter deception felt upon discovering the hootenanny's bathroom really isn't "on the right" after all.

Demonstrating why he is one of Canada's most loved jokesters, Black masterfully captures the laughter that often bursts out of the seams of everyday life. But be warned - adding these stories to your day-to-day reading may also double as a daily abdominal workout.
