Filed under Book Store Events

Lynne Truss, author of the best-selling book on grammar, Eats, Shoots & Leaves, tackles a new subject – manners, or the lack thereof – in her new book Talk to the Hand .

British writer Lynne Truss reviews books for the Sunday Times of London, is a familiar voice on BBC Radio and won the British Book Award for her 2004 book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Truss reads from and discusses her new book, Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or, Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door. Truss issues a “call to arms” as a witty defender of the civilized world.

($19.95) Gotham Books ISBN # 0-14-305803-7. Please visit Lynne Truss’s Web site as well.
