“The benefits of a good laugh will last long after the physical act has passed. Most likely your favorite memories are the ones that include a good dose of laughter.”

-Stephen Patterson


The McCormick Library will host South Carolina author Stephen Patterson on Thursday, October 25th at 6:30 pm. The author will talk about his nonfiction book Better Living Through Laughter: An Attitude to Live By. The book is designed to reintroduce the reader to the many benefits of laughter. Stephen is a noted speaker and trainer, who specializes in the incorporation of humor into professional and daily life. For over twenty years, Steve has designed programs and workshops on the value of laughter and a good sense of humor. Stephen writes that, “more and more, the prescription to a healthy attitude can be found in laughter. Laughter is a universal language and can be enjoyed and understood by everyone. Laughter can help both mentally and physically. If you fail to enjoy the benefits of laughter, you are cheating yourself out of a wonderful resource for a healthy life.”

The free presentation will begin at 6:30 pm at the McCormick County Library. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments served.
