Have you ever been in an unique situation and wished there was a perfect word to describe what you were experiencing? Tonight on Inquiry we speak with writer, translator and book reviewer LIESL SCHILLINGER about her witty new book WORDBIRDS: AN IRREVERENT LEXICON FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.  This is a wonderful collection of neologisms that Liesl coined to describe our life now, and beautifully illustrated with birds. Sound intriguing? Tune in and learn why you never want to be involved in a TWEET SHOW.

Inquiry welcomes back  writer, artist and fisherman of the world JAMES PROSEK. Tonight James talks about his amazing on-going project of painting life-sized pictures of some of the iconic game fish of the Atlantic Ocean. But these works are not just illustrations, but connect to more complex ideas about how we look at species and the environment. A collection of these works can be found in the book OCEAN FISHES: PAINTINGS OF SALTWATER FISHES.
