Fun, heartwarming Christmas stories

Ipswich humorist Doug Brendel will read his beloved Christmas story “Dirty” and his story-poem “The Day After Christmas” at Time & Tide Fine Art, 4 Market St., Ipswich, on Thursday evening, December 13.

The 7 pm event will serve as a fundraiser for the humanitarian “New Thing” charity that Doug and his wife Kristina direct in the former Soviet Union. Admission is free; donations will be accepted. Between the two readings, Doug plans to briefly introduce New Thing and answer questions.

For more information, contact Doug Brendel directly via 978-810-1005 or

so he can put the event on his blog on wither Thurs. or Friday.
