Our May speaker, Constance Hale, shares tips and techniques, insights and inspiration—all from her new book about how to transform sentences. Her talk will romp through the history of English, bust a few favorite myths of grammar teachers, and include examples ranging from Shakespeare to Shake N Bake, Joan Didion to Junot Díaz. She throws in a game and a contest to show you how to exercise a few new muscles.
