Quick heads-up that there are two intriguing events through the Kansas City Public Library this week. The Postwar Dream Home: The Ranch House, a presentation by Mary van Balgooy, is at the Plaza Branch Tuesday, April 28 at 6:30. I would be there with bells on, but everything in my life is happening between 3 and 8 pm Tuesday evening. Balgooy is a leading authority on ranch houses and has written a biography on architect Cliff May. There is a reception preceding at 6:00. More information here.
Equally intriguing, for those with curious and creative minds, Joshua Wolf Shenk will discuss his new book Powers of Two: Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs, on Wednesday, April 29th at 6:30 pm at the Central Library downtown. Again, there is a reception at 6:00. More information on this event here.
In general, there's loads of good stuff happening at the library and you'd be smart to sign up for their weekly newsletter.
