Richard Lederer's An Evening of Language and Laughter

Richard Lederer's An Evening of Language and Laughter
English Language Humor
by: Richard Lederer

Directed by: Richard Lederer
Produced by: Richard Lederer

PowPAC, Poway’s Community Theatre, invites you to An Evening of Language and Laughter presented by Union-Tribune language columnist Richard Lederer, author of the best-selling Anguished English series, at 7:00 p.m. Sunday, November 8, 2020 via Zoom. In what other tongue can you drive in a parkway and park in a driveway and your nose can run and your feet can smell? Dr. Lederer enjoys audience participation and will answer questions about our beautiful but bewildering language as time allows. Come prepared to laugh and learn.

The syndicated column, "Lederer on Language," appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States, including the San Diego Union-Tribune. The author was a founding co-host of public radio's "A Way With Words" and has been named International Punster of the Year and Toastmasters International's Golden Gavel winner.

Dr. Lederer is the author of more than 50 books about language, history and humor, including his newest titles, A Treasury of Halloween Humor and A Treasury of Christmas Humor. Both books will be offered for sale during the presentation with over 60% of the purchase price being donated back to PowPAC by the author. Each book will be inscribed and autographed to your specifications. Please note that, although the books are G-rated, they contain passages that could divulge holiday secrets held dear by children younger than age 12. You may also purchase a book now by selecting the following link:
