Episode 29: A Grammar Day Celebration
In honor of National Grammar Day, That Word Chat with Editor Mark Allen celebrates the befuddling, ever-changing, varied grammars of the English language. We'll talk about our geeky love of our language with Martha Brockenbrough, creator of National Grammar Day. We'll also welcome special guest Mignon Fogarty, host of National Grammar Day and creator of the Grammar Girl podcasts. Andy Hollandbeck, winner of the 2020 ACES National Grammar Day Tweeted Poetry Contest, will join us to read some of his grammar-related compositions.
That Word Chat is at 4:30 p.m. EST (9:30 p.m. UTC) on Tuesday, March 2 (two days before National Grammar Day). Sign up below for the Zoom meeting link.
Clockwise from above: Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty, author Martha Brockenbrough, and Andy Hollandbeck, managing editor at the Saturday Evening Post.
