Library Finds! (JW Edition – Laughter is the Best Medicine)

Finals week is officially here! Julia thought she’d highlight some books we have in the collection that delve into the lives of famous comedians because this is the time to remember not to get bogged down in the stress of exams and papers. Yes, you should make them a priority, but you should also take breaks so you don’t burn out. Here are a few titles we have in the collection – or if you need a video break, this gem has been cracking Julia up since last week.
