What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It, a Book Talk & Signing
James Geary is the author of multiple books, including the New York Times bestseller The World in a Phrase. He will discuss and sign Wit's End: What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It ($14.95 W. W. Norton & Company), which explores every facet of wittiness, from its role in innovation to why puns are the highest form of wit. Adopting a different style for each chapter, Geary embodies wit in all its forms. Wit’s End agilely balances psychology, folktale, visual art, and literary history with lighthearted humor and acute insight, demonstrating that wit and wisdom are really the same thing.
