For our next STC-SM virtual book club, we will be reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, by Lynne Truss.
Truss is an ardent grammarian, and her book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, is all about how vital accurate grammar and punctuation are to our understanding of information. Her philosophy is replete with comical examples, so even if you don’t find yourself a strict grammarian, you might get a laugh out of those who do…and if you are disturbed that the Oxford (serial) comma is missing from the title, you are not alone. This book is sure to spark off much debate!
You can purchase this book online wherever books are sold.
Thank you to all of you who participated in the vote. We look forward to reading this book alongside you (virtually) over the next couple months.
Our discussion will take place on Thursday, May 21, at 7 p.m. in our Slack book_club channel. We’ll post registration details closer to the date of the event.
