Author Kory Stamper: "Word by Word - The Secret Life of Dictionaries"
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Meet Kory Stamper, lexicographer at Merriam-Webster, and hear how Kory cracks open the complex, obsessive world of lexicography -- from the agonizing decisions about what and how to define, to the knotty questions of usage in an ever-changing language.

Kory's a rock star among word mavens, with her own Facebook Fan Club and "Ask the Editor" video series. The book is less of a memoir and more of a tell-all about how words are defined and dictionaries get created, told through Kory's hilarious and distinctive voice.  The Book Table will sell books.
