Kevin Kling

Author and humorist Kevin Kling says when you can laugh at something, it doesn't control you.

In that case, the Minnesota native has plenty to laugh about.  Born with a birth defect that limits the use of his left arm, he lost the use of his other arm in a 2001 motorcycle accident.

But Kevin Kling is a big believer in sanuk - a concept he was introduced to in Thailand that deals with the joy that pervades everything.  And to hear him talk ... you can almost believe it.

A very special Christmas Eve episode of MN Reads with Kevin Kling: how to survive the holidays with family and why the mitten is always big enough.
