Meet Gretchen McCulloch Author of Because Internet
September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us in welcoming The New York Times bestselling author of Because Internet, Gretchen McCulloch, in a public appearance at Textio.
Textio and the Elliott Bay Book Company are proud to present The New York Times bestselling author of Because Internet, Gretchen McCulloch.
The delightful Because Internet is a linguistically informed look at how the internet is changing the English language, why it’s a good thing, and what our online interactions reveal about who we are.
Seattle Review of Books co-founder Paul Constant will join Gretchen, and Textio CEO Kieran Snyder, to discuss the book and linguistics, followed by a Q&A from the audience.
This is a free event, open to the public, at Textio’s office. We’re located right across from the Central Library, downtown. There will be a signing after the talk, and books will be available for purchase from the Elliott Bay Book Company.
Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and light bites will be provided.
Please let us know you’ll be joining by registering for the event. Space is limited!
