Join this Guardian journalist on a mind-boggling and myth-busting journey through the phenomenon of language.
In his new book Don’t Believe A Word: The Surprising Truth About Language, linguist David Shariatmadari reveals the science of language, urging us to abandon our dearly-held beliefs in a bid to uncover the (far more interesting) truth about what we do with words.
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
