Handmade: Creative Focus in the Age of Distraction

1.28.18_GaryRogowski_AuthorPhoto

In Handmade, Gary Rogowski confronts the obstacles to the creative artist in the modern age: distraction, pointless busyness, fear of failure, and self-doubt. Rogowski recounts his story of how he became a craftsman through years of persistent labor, teaching him focus, patience, resilience, tolerance for failure, and a love of beauty and mastery for their own sakes. The book is part autobiography, part guide to creativity, and part guide to living an authentic life. Join us for an afternoon of inspiration!

Bookworms: Click’d with Tamara Ireland Stone

Click'd High Res Cover

Allie Navarro can’t believe the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp has gone viral. CLICK’D pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone’s secrets, she has to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with her archenemy Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back her friends—all before she steps on stage to present CLICK’D to the judges? Join New York Times Bestselling author Tamara Ireland Stone for a fun coding activity, and find out! RSVP here.
