“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the face.”
– Victor Hugo

Summer Reading Ideas from Next Season’s Program

Humor has the ability to provoke delight and influence our thoughts and emotions, as well as stimulate our imagination and foster new insights. Humor also has physiological and psychological benefits.

One literature analyst (Michael Cart) said, “Humor is the Rodney Dangerfield of literary forms. It gets no respect!” But humor plays many functions in a literary work. Whether you fancy satire, irony, wordplay, incongruity, or any other form of humor, you will find it in the authors that will be presented in our upcoming season.

“Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.”
― George Gordon Byron
