TML’s Evening Book Group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 PM. In April we are reading and will be discussing The Mother Tongue: English and How it Got That Way, by Bill Bryson. All are welcome to join the discussion!
 
“With dazzling wit and astonishing insight, Bill Bryson brilliantly explores the remarkable history, eccentricities, resilience and sheer fun of the English language. From the first descent of the larynx into the throat (why you can talk but your dog can’t), to the fine lost art of swearing, Bryson tells the fascinating, often uproarious story of an inadequate, second-rate tongue of peasants that developed into one of the world’s most spoken languages.
