9781620405406_p0_v1_s260x420.JPG

Paul Dickson returns to the program to discuss his latest word book.  Dickson is the most prolific writer I know. You might recall his previous Book Nook appearances for his recent biography of Bill Veeck, "The Dickson Baseball Dictionary," and "Words from the White House-Words and Phrases Coined and Popularized by America's Presidents."

Paul Dickson's love for language and words is never ending. His latest offering is "Authorisms - Words Wrought By Writers." In this collection you'll discover how many words have entered general usage and some of the people who have been responsible for coining new words over the centuries.
