In the midst of life’s challenges nothing helps like a good laugh and Manhattan Library Association would like to give you just that. This year’s TALK (Talk About Literature in Kansas) series is “That’s Funny: Books that Make Us Laugh“. We’ll discussing four books through the spring. The first meeting is Thursday, January 29, at 7:00 pm, in the Manhattan Public Library Auditorium where we’ll talk about The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald with Trish Reeves of Haskell Indian Nations University.
In The Egg and I, MacDonald writes about her years as a young bride in the late 1920s, which she spent with her less-than-realistic new husband on a very primitive chicken farm in rural Washington state. Copies are available for check-out at the Information Desk on the first floor of the library.
