Leslie Dunton-Downer talked about her book The English is Coming!: How One Language Is Sweeping the World (Touchstone, 2010). English has fast become the preeminent language in business, science, diplomacy, education, entertainment, environmentalism, and socializing. The portion of English speakers who are non-native is growing. Ms. Dunton-Downer uses the stories of 30 English words used and understood around the globe to show how the language has changed and spread.

She was interviewed at the 33rd Annual National Press Club Book Fair and Authors' Night, a fundraiser for the Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library and The SEED Foundation held Tuesday, November 9, 2010 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. close
