Book Talk: When Eero Met His Match
Next Wednesday, September 21, at 6:30pm
Who are publicists, what do they do, and where did they come from? Is a famous architect a good architect? Is every good architect famous? When writing history, where do we draw the line between the personal and the professional?
For our upcoming issue, the London architect Marianna Janowicz just wrote a review of Eva Hagberg's new book, "When Eero Met His Match," a biography of Aline Louchheim Saarinen and her story as architecture's first publicist. She is in New York for just a few days, so we are having a somewhat spontaneous book talk with the bookstore Head Hi next Wednesday, in their new and expanded space adjacent to Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Please join us at 146 Flushing Ave. on September 21 to discuss love, narrative, architecture, and publicists.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, the talk will begin at 7:00pm.
Attendees can also come via zoom.

(And yes, we realize there is rather a lot going on from NYRA right now, including our Friday launch party, and an impending new issue announcement. We are just excited that it is fall again.)
