About the book
Webster’s American Dictionary is the second most popular book ever printed in English. But who was that Webster? Noah Webster (1758–1843) was a bookish Connecticut farm boy who became obsessed with uniting America through language. He spent twenty years writing two thousand pages to accomplish that, and the first 100 percent American dictionary was published in 1828 when he was seventy years old. This clever, hilariously illustrated account shines a light on early American history and the life of a man who could not rest until he’d achieved his dream. An illustrated chronology of Webster’s life makes this a picture perfect bi-og-ra-phy [noun: a written history of a person's life]. About the author

Wild and whimsical, weird and wacky, his work strives to give a smile or chuckle to the face of every viewer, and hopefully yours as well. Next on the show is artist Russ Ritell. Russ Ritell is a New York native and agraduate from the School of Visual arts in Manhattan. He has been working in traditional and digital media for more than 20 years.

He created a large multi-media installation call "The Media Church" about TV and the news affecting social values, and has shown work centered on the BP oil spill and the economic depression. His upcoming exhibit is called "Wild in The Streets" and opens Oct.12th at the Bau Gallery in Beacon, NY. Our final guest will be artist Michael L Peters. Michael L.
