Authors’ Circle Presents: Benjamin Dreyer author of “Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style” in a conversation with Katie Rosman, New York Times columnist.
A grammar quiz will be administered to all attendees who wish to participate, and a free copy of Benjamin Dreyer’s book will be awarded to the winner.
About the book: As Random House’s copy chief, Dreyer has upheld the standards of the legendary publisher for more than two decades. He is beloved by authors and editors alike—not to mention his followers on social media—for deconstructing the English language with playful erudition. Now he distills everything he has learned from the myriad books he has copyedited and overseen into a useful guide not just for writers but for everyone who wants to put their best prose foot forward.
Chockful of advice, insider wisdom, and fun facts, this book will prove to be invaluable to everyone who wants to shore up their writing skills, mandatory for people who spend their time editing and shaping other people’s prose, and perhaps best of all, an utter treat for anyone who simply revels in language.
