Author Reading | Undoing Drugs: The Untold Story of Harm Reduction and the Future of Addiction (virtual)


A virtual event with bestselling author Maia Szalavitz for the launch of her newest book. Drug overdoses now kill more Americans annually than guns, cars, or breast cancer. But the United States has tried to solve this national crisis with policies that only made matters worse. In the name of "sending the right message," we have maximized the spread of infectious disease, torn families apart, incarcerated millions of mostly Black and Brown people--and utterly failed to either prevent addiction or make effective treatment for it widely available.

Talk | Lucian Bernhard and The Object Poster (virtual)


Design historian Steven Heller hosts an evening examining the iconic and impactful work of Lucian Bernhard. Lucian Bernhard is the putative father of the modern advertising poster. He came to be best known for the Sachplakat—or object poster, a subset of the greater Plakatstil (poster style) genre. Unlike the Jewish, Vienna-based Julius Klinger, Bernhard left Germany before 1933 and became a more variegated commercial artist, producing type face families, children's books, logos, and identity systems. This wide-ranging talk will examine Bernhard's European and American accomplishments in the design field he helped to invent.

Author Reading | Queer Time: A Notebook of Taiwanese Tongzhi Literature (virtual)

Author Reading | Believers: Making a Life at the End of the World (virtual)


Award-winning poet and essayist Lisa Wells presents her new book, introducing trailblazers and outliers from across the globe who have found radically new ways to live and reconnect to the Earth in the face of climate change. Like many of us, Wells has spent years overwhelmed by news of apocalyptic-scale climate change and a coming sixth extinction. She did not need to be convinced of the stakes. But what can be done? Blending reportage, memoir, history, and philosophy, Wells opens up seemingly intractable questions about the damage we have done and how we might reckon with our inheritance. Believers demands transformation: If the Earth is our home, if our home is being destroyed--how then shall we live?
