On March 23rd, 2015, Aberg Center for Literacy supporters, volunteers, and students, joined fans of Wayword Radio's hit independent radio show, A Way with Words for an intimate evening of linguistic fun at the historic Majestic Theater in downtown Dallas. Hosts of A Way with Words, Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett delved into the quirks of the English language, and shared insights into how their own upbringing sparked a life-long fascination with words.
KERA's host of Think, Kris Boyd joined Martha & Grant on stage for an illuminating interview, and NPR's game guru John Chaneski led audience members on Team Martha and Team Grant in a rousing, word-themed puzzle game.
One final highlight for the evening was when Aberg Center for Literacy's newest crop of U.S. Citizens joined the radio celebrities on stage for a standing ovation.
