Event Feature: Book Signing with Author Leslee Koritzke

Professors and teachers confront horrible writing, often with a satisfying glass of wine in hand. Written in the style of pretentious wine descriptions, Pour a Glass: The Wine and Drink Pairing Guide for Terrible Writing points out the ludicrous language usage of today's college students. Each sample of student writing is genuine; not a letter or punctuation mark has been altered. Read Pour a Glass with your favorite adult beverage.

Leslee Koritzke is an Altadena resident and college professor of pyschology. She has worked at the community college leve for 30 years, as a counselor and dean, as well as a professor. She warns her students that terrible writing could end up in her book. They seem to like her anyway. So do her children and dog.
