SVM Book Club: Laughter in Appalachia by Loyal Jones and Billy Edd Wheeler

August 9 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free

From the publisher: “From the people of the Appalachian Mountains comes a special brand of humor: dry, colorful and earthy, aimed sometimes at the hillbilly’s own foibles, but often at the outside world’s pretenses, too.

As longtime fans of and contributors to Appalachian lore, Jones and Wheeler collected the material for this popular and timeless volume at the Festival of Appalachian Humor sponsored by the Appalachian Center at Berea College. Includes jokes and yarns on such topics as hunting, lawyers and doctors, alcohol, and religion, along with essays on the nature and origins of humor. This hilarious collection based in Appalachia America will teach readers the importance of resourcefulness, trustworthiness and respect.”
