Thursday, April 17
6:30PM Check-in
7:00-8:30PM Presentation


Join us for a fascinating night of conversation with Nicholas Blechman about the future of food through the eyes of a designer. Hear what it’s like to live and dine for 6 months with archeologists, Pulitzer prize winning historians, and 25 unruly children on the highest point in Rome. Designer and genuine Italian, Matteo Bologna, will introduce and moderate this tantalizing event. Nicholas will also offer a sneak peak at his newest children’s book Animal Kingdom, due out in April. We will have copies of the book for purchase and signing after the event.

Nicholas Blechman is an internationally recognized art director, designer, and author and illustrator. He is currently the art director of the Times’ Book Review and has art directed the New York Times editorial page. In 2013, Blechman lived in Rome for six months as the recipient of the Rome Prize. During his time there, he created a project called “Food Chains” that maps out the origins of our food in the industrialized food system through drawings and information graphics.
