Cumming Meeting Room

Douglas Young will make the case that in today's age, we need more comedy than ever. He will examine the writers whose humor influenced his novels and short stories -- such as Philip Roth, John Kennedy Toole, Charles Bukowski, Woody Allen, and Flannery O'Connor -- and then discuss his humor-writing techniques.

Dr. Douglas Young is a political science professor emeritus who taught government and history for over 33 years and whose essays, poems, and short stories have appeared in a variety of publications in America, Canada, and Europe. His first novel, Deep in the Forest, was published in 2021 and the second, Due South, came out in 2022. His next book, This Little Opinion Plus $1.50 Will Buy You a Coke: A Collection of Essays, appeared in 2024.
