Umbrella covers OMG!

The curator of the Peaks Island Umbrella Cover Museum, which won an Editor's Pick Best award in 2002 and is the only institution of its kind in the world, is releasing a book early next month. Uncovered and Exposed! A Guide to the World's Only Umbrella Cover Museum, is an inside look at the quirky establishment, which opened its doors in 1996. Nancy 3 Hoffman (that's not a typo) will sign books in town (at the Green Hand Bookshop, 661 Congress St., from 5-8 pm on August 6) and at the museum itself the following day (62-B Island Avenue from 4-8 pm). Expand your horizons, people.
