Participants in this year’s “Let’s Talk About It” can catch a bit of laughter as they read through “Catch-22,” considered among the funniest books ever written, even called a keystone work in American literature.
The book by Joseph Heller will be discussed during the Feb. 5, 7 p.m. session to be held at the library. Copies of the book are available for check-out from the library.
Dustin Crawford, the English professor from Utah State University, will again be the discussion facilitator.
“Catch-22” features “the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero endlessly inventive in his schemes to save his skin from the horrible chances of war,” the information provided stated. He has to deal with Col. Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. The Great Loyalty Oath Crusade traps Yossarian in missions he doesn’t want to complete.
