National Autism Awareness Month
On March 29, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its estimate of autism prevalence in the United States to 1 in 88 children (1 in 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls). By comparison, this is more children than are affected by diabetes, AIDS, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy or Down syndrome – combined. Autism Speaks' multi-year Ad Council public service advertising campaign stresses the importance of recognizing the early signs of autism and seeking early intervention services.

In April we celebrate National Poetry Month when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Come by Waggoner and check out a volume of poetry.

National Humor Month (also celebrated in April) was founded in 1976 by best-selling humorist Larry Wilde, Director of The Carmel Institute of Humor. It is designed to heighten public awareness on how the joy and therapeutic value of laughter can improve health, boost morale, increase communication skills and enrich the quality of one's life.

On April 20, Waggoner hosts the Trevecca Authors Celebration where we recognize the scholarly publishing of our faculty and administrators. Scholarly works include books, essays, journal articles, conference proceedings, original writings [poetry, short fiction, choral music...] published within the 2011-2012 school year. Works are displayed in the library as well as listed on the library website.
