Description of author’s talk:
Have you ever thought about the memories some objects spontaneously evoke? What makes some stand out, but not others?
I want to share with you examples of excellent product design which are considered iconic. Some are still in use or for sale today. I’ll explain their origins and how they have become an integral part of our culture and our collective memory.
Evenings with Authors and other weeknight programs at the Library are free and open to the public (except as noted) thanks to support from the Annenberg Foundation, our members, and those who attend programs. There is a suggested donation of ten euros for non-members.
