Richard Lederer : An Afternoon of Language & Laughter
Union-Tribune language columnist Richard Lederer, author of Anguished English, will take you on a joy ride through the glories and oddities of our marvelous English language, in which you drive in a parkway and park in a driveway and your nose can run and your feet can smell. Dr. Lederer will also perform some of the greatest puns ever.
