Local author Richard Gardiner speaks about his work, "Funny Stuff: A Cheerful Poetic Romp Through the Puddles and Muddles of this Goofy Planet." This witty poet finds a good laugh in just about everything. His collection of poems invites us all to get silly, exploring the incongruous, the absurd, the surprising and the seemingly familiar that really isn't.

Brace yourselves for some old-fashioned funny stuff!
