Conversations at the Newberry

Two speakers. No moderator. One free-ranging conversation on a topic steeped in history and yet palpably of-the-moment. “Conversations at the Newberry” is intended to be the out-loud, public equivalent of what happens here every day when readers encounter books and manuscripts. It brings to the Newberry pairs of authors who are deeply interested in and knowledgeable about a humanities-related topic that deserves attention today and into the future.

Conversations at the Newberry
Architects Ann M. Beha and Steven G. Gerrard on the challenges of renovating historic buildings
Free and open to the public. Registration required.
In this installment of “Conversations at the Newberry,” Ann M. Beha and Steven G. Gerrard will present work that renews—and challenges—historic settings, in support of new programs and identity. They will explore the recent Newberry Library renovation—its purpose, principles, and design expression—to probe the issues of change and continuity for landmark buildings.
