10E1985: DDC at the SPL

 
Aaron "Field Notes" Draplin was at the Somerville Library to tell “Tall Tales” on Thursday night. This talk (sponsored by The Barbarian Group) had been in the works for a few months and huge thanks to Draplin for making it happen. An enlightening and inspiring 90 minutes; pretty fantastic honestly. You might know about this nugget pictured above (how he was involved in creating the Highway Recovery Act and TIGER/DOT logos. Over one weekend...) but the last story was a pretty heavy emotional punch. I got choked up even retelling it to Mrs. 10E later. Massive respect to Aaron for the tone of the whole evening.

This was a total thrill for me, not gonna lie -and the crowd was into it. Social afterwards at Five Horses (thx guys, and Inspired Bev.) was great too #rum_punch. Major chats about seed hats; past and current manufacturers (all tiny). More to come...
