Roy Blount Jr.

Quail Ridge Books & Music—Loyal NPR listeners know Roy Blount Jr. as the gruff-sounding panelist on the Saturday morning news show "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me," yet he is also the author of 21 books. Blount has written for publications ranging from Oxford American to Sports Illustrated to Garden and Gun. At Quail Ridge, Blount will promote the paperback release of his latest book, Alphabet Juice, and with it, his unique views on the English language. This professional curmudgeon will appear at 7:30 p.m. For more information, visit or call 828-1588. —Sarah Ewald
