Don’t miss an entertaining evening with bestselling author Edward McClelland!  He will talk about his latest book, How to Speak Midwestern, which explains the meanings and origins of local expressions such as the Pittsburgh toilet, squeaky cheese, devil strip, city chicken, shampoo banana, and chevy in the hole.

Ohioans, historians, casual linguists, culturalists, and readers will all enjoy this entertaining program about why Midwesterners talk the way we do.

Copies of McClelland’s book will be available for purchase from the Kent Free Library Foundation by cash or check.  The program is co-sponsored by the Friends of Kent Free Library.
