Richard Lederer Shares Love of Language

Last week's Community Life guest, wordplay wizard Richard Lederer, left students and faculty laughing, groaning, and scratching their heads over his mastery of language.
Lederer is a speaker, teacher, and author of more than 30 books about grammar, oxymorons, anagrams, and more. He read several pun-filled excerpts from his latest book, Monsters Unchained, then shared his personal journey from an unhappy pre-med student to a joyful and fulfilled "verbivore." Following his presentation, Lederer stopped by several English classes, where he joined discussions about poetry and fiction, and answered students' questions about his life and career.
