Snoopy and gang headed to Laman

Posted By on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 1:59 PM


Charlie Brown will never learn that Lucy is going to swipe the football away from him every time he tries to kick it. But fans of the comic strip "Peanuts" will learn about the cartoonist who created it at Laman Library when "Inside Peanuts: The Life and Art of Charles M. Schulz" opens Friday, March 30.

"Inside Peanuts" features photographs and information on Schulz's early life in Minnesota to his life as an artist in California and will include more than 40 "Peanuts" comic strips drawn over the cartoon's 50-year history, collectibles, and Schulz's quotes, such as this one: “It seems beyond the comprehension of people that someone can be born to draw comic strips, but I think I was.”

There will be an opening reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday with music by “The Gentleman Jazz.”

The stop at Laman is part of an international tour sponsored by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa, Calif.
