Because Who Doesn’t Love a Good Laugh?

Read a humorous book this month!

Laughter is a great form of stress relief — it can improve your mood, and that’s no joke. Pick up a book from the humor genre this month and laugh your way through the pages! Everyone has different ideas of what is funny, so we are including a list of authors who write a variety of humorous stories, from satirical to offbeat and mysterious to heartwarming. This is just a small sample of authors known to write humorous fiction; ask your local librarian to help you find more as well as some nonfiction laughs. Click on one of the author’s names below to see their books in the Library’s catalog.
