Description

It's everyone's worst nightmare. You're alone at a party, looking into a crowded living room, when you catch the eye of a particularly attractive individual next to the potted ficus. Smiles are exchanged, the floor is crossed. Now is the moment for that crucial first impression. "Hi." "Hi there." Gotta do better than that. Conversation. Small yet engaging talk. Come on, come on...Wait, what's this? Have I seen the Mondrian exhibit? The who? You found it what? Did you just say "ebullient in its oppressive geometric inertia?" What the heck does that mean? Oh my God. I have to say something now. "Um...Gee, guess I missed out."

Well, you don't have to miss out. Let's face it, art and literature are broad subjects, but Living Language A Shortcut to Art and Literature can get you started. This entertaining, irreverent, and funny program will help you reclaim vague memories of people, paintings, and periods; take part in conversations instead of just nodding and smiling; figure out who and what you'd like to know more about; and toss around references to Mondrian, Melville, and Monet.
