November Happenings


6-7:30 PM @ Oddfellows Gallery
Marshall Ramsey has seen (and drawn) just about everything in Mississippi for more than 20 years, and now he’s taking his pen and personality on the road. Join Marshall’s Mississippi, a dynamic roadshow featuring live interviews, interactive illustrations and intimate discourse from Mississippi Today Editor-At-Large Marshall Ramsey and his acclaimed guests – Mayor Toby Barker, WDAM Anchor Karrie Leggett-Brown and Mississippi Today sports columnist Rick Cleveland. Fans of the Pulitzer-nominated editorial cartoonist have never seen Marshall quite like this: part news magazine, part personal odyssey and wholly Mississippi. He’s spent two decades drawing some of the most powerful political players in the state, which makes Marshall’s Mississippi look a little different. He doesn’t just see Mississippi politics like we do; he sees Mississippi through lively caricatures and vivid color landscapes that find the humor that we often need in seemingly dark and dire times. This evening program will be full of lively discussions, good company and, of course, plenty of laughs. Tickets are $15 and available at Oddfellows Gallery is located at 119 East Front Street, Suite 100, Hattiesburg.
