Mary Norris, a veteran copy editor for The New Yorker, shares laugh-out-loud descriptions of the most vexing spelling, punctuation and usage problems (comma faults, danglers, “who” vs. “whom,” gender-neutral language) and clear explanations of how to handle them. In her new book, “Between You and Me,” the down-to-earth and open-minded Norris draws on examples from Henry James and the Lord’s Prayer, The Simpsons, Stieg Larsson, Gillian Flynn and much more. This session will take attendees inside the hallowed walls of The New Yorker and explore Norris’ work with such celebrated writers as Philip Roth, Pauline Kael and George Saunders.
