Paul Dickson - Words from the White House

Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
There’s British English and American English—and it’s been that way for a long time. The Founding Fathers saw coining words as a way to build a distinct culture, and Dickson’s latest fascinating compendium is a gathering of terms and phrases contributed by American presidents. From tin can (Washington) to bully pulpit (Teddy Roosevelt) to snowmageddon, chief executives have changed the way we speak.
