Dr. Elliot Engel presents “Our Slippery Mother Tongue: A Light History of English”

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
Check-in and refreshments at 6:30 p.m.


Please join us for a speaking engagement with the ever-popular Dr. Elliot Engel.

He is a scholar, performer, and storyteller whose infectious enthusiasm and radiant wit create an imaginative and delightful presentation. 

Through historical incidents and analysis and always with humor, Dr. Engel shows how and why the English language developed in such an amazing way. He explains how the Germans and French contributed in their different fashions to shaping the English of today, and he gives Chaucer his deserved recognition as the first great master of our language.
