David Macaulay speaking in Hanover

Howe Library, Lebanon Public Libraries, Norwich Public Library (VT) and The Friends of the Dartmouth College Library invite you to attend a public presentation by David Macaulay. The four libraries are cooperating to sponsor this event and to bring together as wide an audience as possible to enjoy David Macaulay’s program.

David Macaulay, MacArthur Fellow, Caldecott Award Medalist, and acclaimed artist and writer will present a public program about his work on Saturday, May 2 at 3:00pm in Alumni Hall, Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College in Hanover. A reception and book signing will follow at the Top of the Hop. This event is free and open to the public. We encourage all librarians, trustees and members of the public to attend. David Macaulay’s books highlight art, architecture, history, engineering and design with a generous measure of humor and have broad appeal for adults and children. His work attracts the curious mind of any age and intrigues those who love to learn and explore. David Macaulay’s modest description of himself as an “explainer” belies the ease with which he conveys complex ideas through his detailed illustrations and precise use of words. Macaulay's most recent book is The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body. Other well known titles are Cathedral, City, Mosque, Pyramid and The Way Things Work. Mr. Macaulay's work is on exhibit at the Currier Gallery, Manchester through June 14.

Note: Hanover parking garage on Lebanon Street is near the Hopkins Center.
