What Kind Of Pipe Is Sherlock Holmes Smoking?

If one says "Sherlock Holmes" what do you see in your mind? A long coat ... or maybe the deerslayer hat, curved pipe or a magnifying glass. 

It may surprise you to learn that the two-billed deerslayer hat and the curved pipe aren't even mentioned in what Holmes scholars call "the Canon," the complete text of all the books and short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Local actor and director Ross Dippel says the discrepancies were shared by a Sherlockian expert during Monday's kickoff of Door County Reads. Dippel says the curved pipe, for example, was an actor's choice.

Holmes is one of the central characters in this year's Door County Reads book, The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie King.

Dippel is directing a staged reading of "As Bees In Honey Drown" for the Isadoora Theatre Company as one of the Door County Reads events.   

Door County Reads runs through February 16. More information can be found at
