Oh The Humanity...................

More than 90 arts and humanities programs explore the many facets of laughter!

It's that wonderful time of year again, and the 20th annual Chicago Humanities Festival is in full swing.  Every fall, Humanities Fest brings a different enriching topic, and this year's theme, Laughter, is sure to be a hit.

The complete schedule is available here, and you can add CHF on Facebook and Twitter for frequent updates.   However, the following ChiIL Mama picks stand out from the rest and deserve a closer look.

Tomorrow night at 7:00pm, Matt Groening and Lynda Barry, will hold court at UIC, for an hour lecture.   This event is not particularly kid friendly, but older students and educators are free.
