Sunday Times Bestselling Author Mark Forsyth

The Sunday Times Number One Bestselling Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth’s Inky Fool blog on the strange connections between words. It’s an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language, taking in monks and monkeys, film buffs and buffaloes, and explaining precisely what the Rolling Stones have to do with gardening. Join this acclaimed writer on June 26th for a circular stroll through the hidden connections of the words we use every day. Mark’s latest book, The Horologicon, was BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. Your ticket price includes a signed paperback copy of The Etymologicon, with copies of The Horologicon also available to buy for signing on the night.
