Book Discussion - The Professor and the Madman - Saturday, March 29, 2014 - 10AM
The Oxford English Dictionary used 1,827,306 quotations to help define its 414,825 words. Tens of thousands of those used in the first edition came from the erudite, moneyed American Civil War veteran Dr. W.C. Minor, all from a cell at the Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum. Vanity Fair contributor, Simon Winchester, has told his story in an imaginative work of historical journalism. Copies are available to check out for this book discussion sponsored by the Friends of the Black Earth Library.
