Join David Bukszpan, author of the new book, Is That A Word? From AA to ZZZ: The Weird and Wonderful language of Scrabble, as he explores the most useful and unusual words in the Scrabble lexicon. Bukszpan will present scores of surprising words, offer tips and tricks, and share other highlights from his book to help word warriors from all skill levels. Scrabble can be played in our War Games Room before the event.
