Series Explores Humor Writing
The Stafford County Historical Society will offer a four-part book
discussion series February through May on "That's Funny: Books That Make Us Laugh." Members of the community are invited to
attend the free programs, which will take place at the Stafford County Museum Library.
Laughter has made for some of the best reading since the time of the
ancient Greeks. Books in this series explore through humor what it is to be human
and what makes society tick. They challenge readers to see how humor reaches across
time and place to highlight what we all share, together, as human beings.
The series is sponsored by the Kansas Humanities
Council (KHC), a nonprofit cultural organization, as part of its Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) program. KHC is furnishing the books and discussion leaders for the Stafford TALK series. For more information about KHC, visit www.kansashumanities.org.
The first meeting is scheduled for February 2, at 1:30 p.m. Readers will discuss The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald.
Readers will enjoy discussing I'm a Stranger Here Myself
by Bill Bryson on March 2, In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash by Jean Shepherd on April 6, and Mama Makes Up
Her Mind and Other Dangers of Southern Living by Bailey White on May 4.

series, contact Stafford County Museum Library at 234-5664.
