Description: We are thrilled to welcome back to Northshire Bookstore James Geary who will be presenting his new book Wit's End: What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It. James will be presenting a talk based on his book entitled "Five Ways to Be Witty" which will be lively, fun and involve lots of audience interaction. He will explore key aspects of wit through film clips, folktales, literary anecdotes, jokes, and juggling—of ideas, words and balls. Join James and us for an evening of word games with the audience, short creativity tests, and a pun competition--the winner of which will receive a free copy of his new book Wit's End! "Wit’s End is delicious. James Geary has managed to produce a witty book about wit that steers an elegant path between waggishness and wisdom." – Stephen Fry, comedian, actor, and writer "I have been reading Wit's End in juxtaposition to rereading and again writing about James Joyce's Ulysses. Geary prompts me to think that Joyce's title could have been No End to Wit. Goethe wrote an essay called No End to Shakespeare. There seems to be no end to James Geary's versatility." – Harold Bloom
