Speaker: Richard Lederer

Topic: Fascinating Facts About Our Presidents

Who was our youngest American president? Who was our oldest? Who was our tallest, shortest, and fattest? Writer, speaker, and broadcaster Richard Lederer, whose presidential trivia series appears daily on the front page of the Union-Tribune, will offer a treasury of fascinating facts about the feats, fates, families, foibles, and firsts of our American presidents.

Richard Lederer is the author of 40 books about language, history, and humor, including his best-selling Anguished English series and his current books, The Gift of Age, A Tribute to Teachers, American Trivia, and Amazing Words. He has been profiled in magazines as diverse as The New Yorker, People, and the National Inquirer and is founding co-host of "A Way With Words" on Public Radio.

Dr. Lederer's column, "Looking at Language," appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States, including the San Diego Union-Tribune. He has been named International Punster of the Year and Toastmasters International's Golden Gavel winner.

A book signing will follow Dr. Lederer’s performance.
