Dirty Jokes and Bawdy Songs Recipient of a Grant from the L. J. and Mary C. Skaggs Folklore Fund


The University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce that Dirty Jokes and Bawdy Songs: The Uncensored Life of Gershon Legman by Susan G. Davis is the recipient of a grant from the L. J. and Mary C. Skaggs Folklore Fund. This internal press fund, first established in 1995, supports publication of diverse folklore titles that explore cultures from across the United States and around the world. Dirty Jokes and Bawdy Songs, the story of Gershon Legman’s singular, disreputable resume that made him a counter-cultural touchstone during his forty-year exile in France, exemplifies the spirit of this fund.
