Steven Pinker: The Sense of Style
Left Bank Books presents bestselling author and linguist Steven Pinker, who will sign and discuss "The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century."
Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? In "The Sense of Style," Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the 21st century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic. Entertaining, practical, and filled with surprises, this book makes the ability to write better English available to all.
Admission to this event is free and open to the public, but space is limited; please RSVP.
Proof of purchase of "The Sense of Style" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line after the event.
