Owing to the fact that bloated phraseology, terminology, and jargon have totally de-escalated the level of our common discourse—recontextualizing how we broach communication and literally transforming the net positive impact on the quality of our personal and work lives—author Ken Smith has conducted exhaustive research to compose a new publication, Junk English, that is at the forefront of providing a different alternative to the very complex way we dialogue as a society. This extremely unique book, revolutionary in nature, will be highly impactful on the correction of the misdeed of language abuse and will significantly expedite the process of assuring success and actual results. With pinpoint accuracy, Smith uncovers the vitally important true facts and specific details of where we detour from economy, substance, and precision. It’s really quite interesting. He appears at 7 p.m. at Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. Free. (202) 364-1919. (Jennifer Agresta)
