James Thurber was one of the most popular humorists of the 1940s and '50s. His cartoons and short stories -- frequently published in The New Yorker -- celebrated the eccentricities of ordinary people.
Recently one of his classic stories -- "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" -- has been made into a new movie from star/director Ben Stiller.
Norcott-Mahany discusses Thurber's best-known short stories on Sunday, February 23, 2014, at 2 p.m. at the Waldo Branch, 201 E. 75th St.
The event is part of the Library's 2013 Adult Winter Reading program "Stop Me if You've Read This One."
Admission is free. RSVP at kclibrary.org or call 816.701.3407.
