Join Mark Forsyth throughout Independent Booksellers Week 2014, where he will be talking about how a Christening present of an Oxford English Dictionary set the tone for a life immersed in the idiosyncrasies of words, and gave birth to his brilliant trio of books on the English language, The Etymologicon, The Horologicon and The Elements of Eloquence.
These being talks in bookshops – places that specialise in providing you with something you didn’t know you were looking for – he may also talk about something that you never knew you were interested in, which is precisely the subject of The Unknown Unknown: Bookshops and the Delight of Not Getting What You Wanted, his essay written specially for IBW this year.
The Unknown Unknown will available from independent bookshops from 28th June. And if that wasn’t enough, the paperback of The Elements of Eloquence will also be available – two months early – for IBW, exclusively for indies!
