National Tell a Joke Day: Library Edition

What is the tallest building in the world? The library, because it has the most stories. Happy National Tell a Joke Day!

Whether it's telling your favorite joke, watching your favorite rom-com, or listening to stand up comedy, nothing brightens up your day better than a good laugh. Another great source for lighthearted humor is literature! Unfortunately though, like most entertainment spaces, the comedy industry lacks diversity. So to celebrate laughter this year, we wanted to create a booklist to highlight published comedians of color available here at the library.
