Roy Blount Jr.

May 19, 2011 @ 8:00 PM - 12:00 AM

He’s the author of 22 books on topics ranging from the Pittsburgh Steelers to Robert E. Lee, and he’s a regular panelist on NPR’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! Blount’s latest, Alphabetter Juice (a follow-up, of course, to 2008’s Alphabet Juice), is another fascinating foray into the nature of language, wordplay, and malapropisms—just what we would expect from our favorite member of the American Heritage Dictionary Usage Panel. More information.
