KUNR's new Grammar Girl segment

We are debuting our new Grammar Girl segment with author Mignon Fogarty, the creator of the Quick and Dirty Tips Network. Once a month, Mignon will explore the many intricacies and quirks of the English language with Reno Public Radio's Michelle Bliss. 

This month, Mignon looks at why our next season has two names--fall and autumn--and whether or not "apple cider" is redundant. She also shares insights from her recent conversation with James Dashner, the author of The Maze Runner, on the tricky business of how to curse, without actually cursing, in YA literature. 


Michelle Billman is a former news director at KUNR Public Radio.
