The Latest from Carrboro Book Beat

I Laid an Egg on Aunt Ruth’s Head by Joel Schnoor (broadcast 3-7-2011)  In this engaging book Schnoor demonstrates that, contrary to the experience of many, grammar can be fun.  In the process of humorous and brief tales about encounters with his formidable Aunt Ruth, who may show up as anything from a Kung Fu master on a mountain top to a spinning, leaping lead rock guitarist, he guides the reader through the intricacies of lie versus lay, dropped infinitives, dangling participles and 40 more of the traps that our language can set for us.  This is a book that offers a painless assist to anyone with the desire to write well and/or the desire to help others learn and it does it while making the reader chuckle instead of groan.  Find out more at
