AAS’s fifth annual Adopt-A-Book event is only days away. We hope to see you in the library in person on Tuesday, April 3, at 6 p.m. In the meantime, you can browse the 2012 Adopt-A-Book Catalog to view the 150 items up for adoption, but remember 50 new items will be available that night. Here are some of the funniest still available for adoption.

Yet today they are wanted by researchers for the political satire, depictions of society, and humorous literature contained in them. Here is a selection that showed up in the past year. ~ Vincent Golden
