Local lexicographer extraordinaire Jane Solomon joins us in Mountain View in celebration of her fun and educational guide, The Dictionary of Difficult Words: With More Than 400 Perplexing Words to Test Your Wits! Jane will be in conversation with Arielle Pardes, senior associate editor for WIRED. (Ages 8+)

What is a bumbershoot? Or a moonbow? And what does it mean when someone absquatulates...? 

Find out all this and more in The Dictionary of Difficult Words. Test your knowledge with more than 400 words to amaze, confuse, and inspire budding wordsmiths (and adults). All of the words featured in this book are difficult to spell, hard to say, and their meanings are obscure to most children (and most adults)! Written with simple, easy-to-understand definitions by lexicographer Jane Solomon, this dictionary celebrates the beauty of the English language for family trivia time spent around the printed page.
