Language gaffes & peccadillos: Common Errors in English Usage with Paul Brians

Should the sign at the grocery store express checkout read "10 Items or Less" or "10 Items or Fewer"?  In what promises to be an enlightening afternoon, Bainbridge Island author and photographer (Four Seasons on Bainbridge Island) Paul Brians brings his expertise as Emeritus Professor of English at Washington State University to bear on this and other pithy questions regarding the language we swim in. The new edition of his book  is revised and expanded, and  remains a useful guide to mixed-up, mangled expressions, foreign language faux pas, confusing terms, and commonly mispronounced words.
