Leslie Savan's new book!

Hi everyone,

After too many years in the making, my book on pop language, Slam Dunks and No-Brainers, has just been been published, and the time has come for me to shamelessly promote it. I’m doing some NYC and New Jersey events, listed below. I also threw in a few book tour events in the Bay Area and Chicago, in case you or any friends of yours are out there.

Meanwhile, you can buy the book on Amazon (uh, duh):


Weds. Oct. 19–between 7:30-8 a.m.?
The Today Show– a segment on pop language
(The times and the segment itself are up in the air, but I taped it last week.)

Mon. Oct. 24, 8:30 p.m.
I’ll be on the hot new Mark Jacobson Show, a “live talkshow” at Mo Pitkins’ House of Satisfaction
34 Ave. A
(free, I think)
