Resident Word Wizard Richard Lederer will take us on a joy ride through our stupendous, tremendous, and end-over-endous English language. Using his original poetry and accompanying images, the verbivorous Dr. Lederer will include a dazzling Halloween frolic, introducing his new book, Monsters Unchained. It includes 1,000 jokes, riddles, puns and poems about scary, slimy, slithery, spooky, slobbery, classical monsters.

Richard has appeared on radio and television shows, including his own weekly radio show, A Way With Words on KPBS, in San Diego. “Lederer on Language” is currently featured every Saturday in the San Diego Union Tribune and recently featured a limerick contest. He has written columns for a number of major national publications and is the author of more than 35 books about language, history, and humor. The American Trivia Quiz Book, companion to American Trivia and coauthored with SDW/EG member Caroline McCullagh, was published in September 2014 .

Please note the change in meeting time to Wednesday, November 19th.
