'A Way with Words' radio host to speak at WKU Mar 9th
By Emil Moffatt
Martha Barnette, co-host of the public radio show A Way with Words, will be in Bowling Green on Thursday, March 9, for a presentation on the state of language followed by a question-and-answer session.
The evening begins at 7:30pmCT and will take place at the Augenstein Alumni Center ballroom, 292 Alumni Ave, Bowling Green, KY.
Admission is free, but spots can be reserved at wkyufm.org/words.
Barnette joined A Way with Words in 2004. She's president of Wayword, Inc., the 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit that produces and distributes the program with support from listeners and underwriters.
She holds an undergraduate degree in English from Vassar College, and did graduate work in classical languages at the University of Kentucky. She studied Spanish in Costa Rica at the ILISA Language Institute.
Before her work in radio, Barnette was a reporter for the Washington Post and an editorial writer for the Louisville Courier-Journal. She's the author of three books on word origins: A Garden of Words, Ladyfingers & Nun's Tummies: A Lighthearted Look at How Foods Got Their Names, and Dog Days & Dandelions. She's often quoted in the news media about language topics.
A Kentucky native, she lives in San Diego, where she can be found hiking mountain trails and performing improv comedy at Finest City Improv.
Barnette's appearance at WKU is sponsored by the Potter College of Arts & Letters, WKU Libraries, WKU Public Broadcasting, Office of the Provost, Department of English, Department of Communication and the School of Journalism & Broadcasting.
