The Design Library Introduces New Meet the Author Series

Larry Millett speaks at the first Meet the Author Series Event

On Thursday, Oct. 1, about 80 students and faculty gathered as Kyle Huberty – Dunwoody’s AIAS Chapter President – introduced Larry Millett at the Design Library’s first Meet the Author Series event. Larry Millett – prominent Minnesota author of both history and mystery books – focused on his body of published work, including his newest book, Minnesota Modern: Architecture and Life at Midcentury, available this fall. Larry Millett wrote many influential Minnesota architecture books including, Lost Twin Cities, the AIA Guide to the Twin Cities, and Once there were Castles.

About the new Meet the Author Series

Librarian Sarah Huber explains that the Design Library’s Meet the Author Series is intended to bring in authors to talk about topics related to the College’s design programs like interior design, architecture, graphic design, and any of the construction sciences areas. Because Larry Millett is a local author specializing in Minnesota’s architectural history, Sarah felt like he was the perfect fit to kick off the series. “I want to promote reading in students’ programs, whether it is books, ebooks, journal articles, blogs or web sites,” Sarah said, “I think the greatest outcome of reading in my field is that I feel inspired about what I do. My hope is that these author talks have that effect on students.”

There will be a new Meet the Author Series event each academic semester. Stay tuned for details about the Spring Semester author event. Until then, click here for more information on the Design Library’s resources and offerings.
