Meet Brian Daniels, Humorist & Author of Thoughts of an Average Joe                             

Thursday, June 4th, 7:00 pm

Location: Bonney Memorial Library, 36 Main Street, Cornish

Author & humorist, Brian Daniels will be reading and speaking about his book "Thoughts of an Average Joe", the hilarious rambling of a man (Joe Wright) whose commentaries voice the confusion and angst of a simple, old dude trying to make sense of life in the modern world.

In the book, Joe offers his thoughts about the many issues that confuse or annoy him: "I'm Not Ready for the Wireless World," "Poachers Are Not Hunters," and "I'm Comfortable in My Old Skin," are just a few examples. He, like many men, struggles to understand his "little woman" and others of her gender in several essays, including "I'm afraid of the Little Woman," and "I've Noticed That Women Are Not Like Men." Join us for an entertaining evening. His book will be available to purchase.
