Your APB is proudly sponsoring comedian Mike. E. Winfield on Thursday, February 6 from 11:30am to 12:30pm in Gaiser Student Center.

If this guy looks funny, I mean familiar, it may be because you have seen him on the Late Show with David Letterman. Mike also had a recurring role on NBC'S The Office.

He's creating a lot of buzz headlining nationally at many clubs and colleges and was selected for this year's prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival. Even though he has his eyes on movies and television, his first love is driving long distances from the airports to perform live standup comedy at new schools.

Come relax, laugh and enjoy some refreshments with your friends.

Join us for this special presentation with live music and a book signing!

In his recent publication, Parfait Bassale, M.A., lays down the foundation for the Story and Song Centered Pedagogy (SSCP) as a viable approach to increasing empathy in the classroom. He makes the case that music and storytelling by virtue of being effective communication tools and mood thermostats, can influence behavior. As such, they are together, a very potent tool in the educators toolbox. Come learn about this pedagogy and enjoy some live music as Parfait presents his contribution to the field of Peace Education by repositioning empathy as a cornerstone for transformational peace building.

This event is free and open to the community.
