Illustrator Maira Kalman insists that one needn’t be an English major to have fun with the rules of grammar. Join the artist for a discussion of her sources of inspiration for her delightful drawings for William Strunk, Jr., and E. B. White’s The Elements of Style and her experience working with composer Nico Muhly to create a song cycle inspired by the popular treatise.
