Since its debut in 2016, the internet’s most trusted source for Mennonite satire has kept readers laughing with hundreds of hilarious headlines and tongue-in-cheek editorials where (almost) no topic is off limits. The Best of the Bonnet brings together some of The Daily Bonnet’s funniest, most loved posts, that have drawn the attention of everyone from the Canadian Prairies to the high-rises of New York. In this collection of stories is a special introduction by author Andrew Unger, commenting on the nature of satire and his love for community.
The Best of the Bonnet is an absolute must-have for fans of The Daily Bonnet or anyone in love with the absurdity of day-to-day life.
Andrew Unger is the author and founder of the satire website The Daily Bonnet and the award-winning novel Once Removed. An educator based in southern Manitoba, his work has appeared in
Geez, Rhubarb, Ballast, CBC.ca, the Winnipeg Free Press, and
many others. If you go back far enough, he’s probably related to you.


Along the Road to Freedom

The next time you visit the museum be sure to check out our current gallery exhibit: Along the Road to Freedom, paintings by Winnipeg artist Ray Dirks.
 
A project of the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery, Winnipeg.
 
In art and words, the exhibit tells the dramatic stories of women and their families who fled the Soviet Union in the decade after the Russian Revolution and during World War II. Despite the despair, horror, and loss each of these families faced, at its core, this exhibit is about love, courage, humility, determination, and faith.
