The Chicago Manual: More than a Century of Style
Now in its 16th edition, The Chicago Manual of Style is the must-have reference for everyone who works with words. Explore both the history of this authoritative text and its relevance in an era where instantaneous global publication is only a tap, text, or tweet away. With the rise of the Internet and social media, writing and publishing have become everyday activities with content that doesn't necessarily pass through traditional filters like copy editors and publishing houses. Is that a good thing? Now that we are all capable of publishing, it seems the importance of editing is greater than ever. Join WBEZ’s Alison Cuddy for a discussion of the Manual's evolving role in publishing, punctuated by audience polling on matters of usage and style.
