Celebrate the Bard’s birthday with Union-Tribune columnist Richard Lederer, who will demonstrate Shakespeare’s astonishing contributions to our English language. Shakespeare exited the earthly stage more than 400 years ago, but Dr. Lederer will demonstrate that the Bard is alive and well and living robustly in San Diego. This event is presented in partnership with the San Diego Shakespeare Society.

The recording of this event will be available for on demand viewing on the Library’s Facebook and YouTube pages following the events conclusion.

Richard Lederer is the author of more than 50 books about language, history, and humor, including his best-selling Anguished English series and his current books, A Treasury of Halloween Humor and A Treasury of Christmas Humor. Dr. Lederer’s syndicated column, “Lederer on Language,” appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States, including the San Diego Union-Tribune, and he is a founding co-host of “A Way With Words” on KPBS Public Radio.
