Author and humorist Roy Blount Jr. is a regular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. He speaks at the Hennepin County Library's Talk of the Stacks series about his new book, "Alphabetter Juice: or the Joy of Text." It's a witty take on the English language, looking at the connection between sounds and meaning, and the sometimes funny origins of words.
