In this heartfelt and funny talk, humorist Amy Lyle shares the idea of “Connective Humor,” and how each of us can heal past hurts, strengthen our relationships, and reduce the sting of failures by developing our own humor lens. Amy Lyle is a humorist who grew up in Marietta, Ohio, which is in the heart of Appalachia and known for a population that is partial to moonshine and prone to acts of violence. She has penned two Amazon Humor & Entertainment best-sellers, The Book Of Failures and We’re All A Mess, It’s OK, and is the writer and co-host of the popular talk show, “In The Burbs.” Amy and her husband, Peter, are raising four children and three giant dogs together in the suburbs, just north of Atlanta.
