Spring 2023: That's Funny - Books That Make Us Laugh

We are often told that “laughter is the best medicine.” Laughter has also made for some of the best reading since the time of the ancient Greeks. Books that make us laugh are often just plain fun to read, as can be seen by their regular presence on bestseller lists. At the same time, the very best funny books are also much more. In the hands of master writers, humor helps us look (warts and all) at what it is to be human and what makes society tick—two topics at the heart of the humanities.

Copies of all books are available at L. W. Nixon Library. Questions? Contact us at 316-322-3235 or
