The New Market Historical Society presents “An Evening with John R. Rose”, the editorial cartoonist for the Byrd Newspapers of Virginia and also the artist behind the pen that draws the nationally syndicated comic strip Barney Google and Snuffy Smith. A buffet dinner consisting of barbecue sirloin tips, braised pork chops, seasoned green beans, whipped potatoes, creamy cole slaw, buttermilk biscuits, apple fritters, assorted desserts, and coffee/tea/decaf will be served at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $15 for NMHS members and $20 for non-members. Following the meal, Mr. Rose promises to provide some insight into the world of editorial cartoons and their impact. We will also be looking at the antics of the citizens who live in Hootin’ Holler. Mr. Rose will have copies of his latest collection of Barney Google and Snuffy Smith strips, as well as his editorial cartoon collection, NOW THIS IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE, that he will be happy to sign and personalize. All are welcome but seating is limited, so make your reservation soon!
