Talk | Character Traits; or Can the Early Twentieth Century Please End?


The literature of early twentieth century typographic industries presented a highly edited view of lettering history in support of their own products. The result was an historical sleight of hand that presented the period’s technological and aesthetic presumptions as timeless fact. These late-Industrial aesthetics continue to exert a disproportionate influence on contemporary digital type design. In this talk Russell Maret attempts to tease out a different historical view of lettering, one that proposes that Industrial aesthetics should not be treated as the rule, but an aberration in letter design. Along the way he’ll touch on related topics such as is legibility worth it?, are digital letterforms type?, and other issues. Maret will have a selection of his typographic books on hand for viewing after the talk. Russell Maret is a letter designer and letterpress printer working in New York City.

Screening | Documentary: Breslin and Hamill: Deadline Artists (2019)


Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill’s brilliant, honest and courageous writing defined New York City’s last great era of print journalism. For five decades, these iconic columnists and longtime friends wrote prolifically, pioneering a style of “New Journalism” that brought elements of storytelling to the news and looked at economic and racial injustice through the lens of ordinary people. Filled with the gusto and humor they both personified, the film draws on rare footage, family archives, and interviews with Tom Wolfe, Guy Talese, Gloria Steinem, Spike Lee, and Robert De Niro, among others. Directed by Jonathan Alter, John Block and Steve McCarthy. 107 mins. Will be followed by a keynote conversation with the directors, moderated by Isaac Fitzgerald of Buzzfeed News, and a reception.

Tour | Neighborhood Stores, Past and Future


A walk with Jen Rubin, author of We Are Staying: Eighty Years in the Life of a Family, a Store, and a Neighborhood. The book tells about the rise, struggles, fall, and the family that owned it across those decades. It is a small business story and a story about a shop owner that keeps on going despite the odds. It is an immigrant story, a grandfather-father-daughter story, a story of the unique character a family business brings to a neighborhood, and a reflection on what has been lost as stores like these disappear.

Discussion | The Free Press -- with PBS Host Bill Moyers


A free press, with its role as a watchdog of the government, is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Yet today journalists are under attack. They have been called “the enemy of the people” by our president and silenced by dictatorships around the world. Is freedom of the press in jeopardy, and what is at stake for the future of democracy? Peter Beinart—contributor to The Atlantic, CNN commentator, and a professor—moderates a discussion featuring renowned journalist Bill Moyers, host and producer of many PBS programs; Anne Applebaum, columnist for The Washington Post; Graciela Mochkofsky, award-winning reporter in South America and the U.S. and professor at the Newmark School of Journalism; and Jelani Cobb, staff writer at The New Yorker.
