Popular writer and broadcaster Richard Lederer, the author of "A Treasury for Dog Lovers" and "A Treasury for Cat Lovers," just published this fall, will offer a program of information and inspiration and wit and wisdom about our most precious pet companions. Be prepared to chuckle, laugh and learn, and even guffaw as this highly entertaining speaker presents touching stories, fascinating facts and rollicking humor about cats and dogs.

Dr. Mark Goldstein, President of the San Diego Humane Society, had the opportunity to preview "A Treasury for Dog Lovers" and said: "In his fun-to-read treasury, Richard Lederer documents the history of dogs over the centuries and captures the very essence of what they do to light up our lives. Like our beloved pets, "A Treasury for Dog Lovers" fills the reader with insight, inspiration, humor, and tears of joy."

Richard Lederer is the author of more than 30 books about language, history, and humor, including his best-selling "Anguished English" series and "Presidential Trivia," which has been newly expanded and updated. He has been profiled in magazines as diverse as "The New Yorker," "People," and the "National Enquirer" and frequently appears on radio as a commentator on language.

Dr. Lederer's syndicated column, "Looking at Language," appears in newspapers and magazines throughout the United States. He has been named International Punster of the Year and Toastmasters International's Golden Gavel winner.

Following his performance, Dr. Lederer will do a book signing for benefit of the Scripps Ranch Library. This is a perfect opportunity to get a head start on your holiday shopping! An autographed copy of one of these newly published books or another Lederer "classic" on language, history or humor would make the perfect gift for almost anybody on your list. Richard will donate all profits in support of the Scripps Ranch Library and San Diego Public Library.

Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Center is located at 10301 Scripps Lake Drive in Scripps Ranch. Overflow parking is available on Meanley Drive off Scripps Ranch Blvd. For information, visit www.srfol.org or call (858) 538-8158.
