THE 2012-2013 ONE BOOK, ONE COMMUNITY READING PROGRAM
LOTS OF LAUGHTER
Read and Donate
Humor and laughter are part of many of the books we love but also go beyond books. Humor is part of every avenue of life. This year the One Book One Community Leadership Team is creating a varied program hitting on many different media outlets including books to elicit our laughter. We have listed here a year’s worth of sessions enabling members and community folks to think about humor in our lives.
We will include humor in writing, the movies, TV, stand-up comedy, columnists, etc. and will recommend books that will go along with these themes. And we have added a complete segment on how to get school children and young people involved and laughing up a storm.
The Year of Laughter
We will feature nine sessions for the year. Each session will be managed by a team from our One Book One Community Leadership group and that team will be responsible for defining the session, determining what guest speaker/speakers to invite, where to hold the session, what audiences to go for, what publicity to take on, etc.
There will be books connected with each session that folks can read before and a brief 5 to 10-minute recap of the books at each session. In short, the One Book One Community presents a year of Lots of Laughter.
