Righting The Mother Tongue
If you have ever pondered why the "h" in ghost is silent, or if cyberspace will kill the "h" in rhubarb, then you will love the latest book from local author and journalist, David Wolman. "Righting the Mother Tongue," takes us on a worldly adventure from English battlefields to Google headquarters and tells the tangled story of English spelling.
David Wolman will be speaking and signing books tonight at Powell's Books on 10th and Burnside at 7:30 pm. Visit his website for more information.
