LATERAL THINKING

A Book Launch by Author Dave Schwartz

Thursday, August 9 | 7:00 pm

Please join us for an evening of pure enjoyment with local author Dave Schwartz as he shares from his collection of humourous ponderings. His book Lateral Thinking is sure to enlighten you on a wide range of topics which might include:

• Escaping the stifling comforts of modern life by going camping
• Smokers as the solution to national security
• The ins and outs of the condom conundrum
• Understanding the critical role of trash in wilderness navigation
• The real truth about the lard of the rinks
• Appliance boxes as a fashion statement
• The value of teaching teens to smoke properly
• Cutting the cheese as an act of terror
• The benefits of sipping manure tea
• Garbage dumps and dangerous roads as the path to prosperity
• Sleeping your way to higher productivity

Dave Schwartz is a former science and outdoor education teacher and a longtime resident of Kenora. In his words, “He has some background as a humour writer and considers himself one of the best humorists in his price range. People laughed when he said he was going to write a funny book…but they aren’t laughing now.”

Copies of Dave’s book are now available in the Museum Gift Shop for $16.00.

Admission to this event is complimentary.

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
