Leach Library hosts “Wacky Songs that made us laugh”

On Thursday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m., the Leach Library will host an evening of music, “Wacky songs that made us laugh”, presented by Mr. Calvin Knickerbocker. 
Mr. Knickerbocker, a Nashua, New Hampshire transplant since 1998, has twenty years of experience in education including teaching a variety of courses from skills and business writing at the University of Texas, Dallas to musical and historical courses at Rivier University’s Rivier Institute for Senior Education (RISE). 
Popular songs with humorous lyrics have kept us laughing since Colonial times. We need comic relief, and songs provide some of the best, though sometimes unintentionally. Excerpts from hilarious songs help chart the evolution of musical humor from the 1920s to the 1980s. Selections poke fun at World War II enemies, diets, television, summer camp, and many other aspects of life. Laugh as you recall wacky moments from the past and discover new ones with Calvin Knickerbocker.  

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Londonderry Leach Library. The event is free and open to the public with seating limited to the first 90 individuals. It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
