When: Wed., Aug. 15, 7 p.m. 2012
Calling all "writers, artists, contractors, flange turners, anglesmiths, and civil servants": author David Rees presents his treatise, How to Sharpen Pencils, at Quimby's Bookstore. Rees is also a craftsman: he left his day job as a political cartoonist (Get Your War On) to pursue his dream of opening an artisanal pencil sharpening business, and now his hand-sharpened pencils are available online for $20 plus shipping and handling. —Sharon Lurye
