Dan Jurafsky -- "The Language of Food"

Dan Jurafsky will speak about and sign his new book, The Language of Food, on Sunday, April 10th at *5:00pm*.

About the Book:

Why do we eat toast for breakfast, and then toast to good health at dinner? What does the turkey we eat on Thanksgiving have to do with the country on the eastern Mediterranean? Can you figure out how much your dinner will cost by counting the words on the menu? In The Language of Food, Dan Jurafsky peels away the mysteries from the foods we think we know. Jurafsky's unique study illuminates an extraordinary network of language, history, and food.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
