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.
