For three decades, Travis Price—an architect, author, teacher, philosopher and environmental pioneer—has created international architecture informed by ecology and mythology, restoring the spirit of place to modern design. We’ll welcome him to the Studio, where he’ll be presenting on the theme of “authenticity in a modern idiom.” The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing of his recent book, The Mythic Modern: Architectural Expeditions into the Spirit of Place (Oro, $65). Irish whiskey, beer and wine will be provided by Arrowine and Spirits.

Whether you're planning a party for a friend whose book has just been published or your organization is hosting a speaker we'll be happy to lend a hand.
Ready for more information? Here's how it works.
1. Total Support Package
Politics & Prose provides both books and bookseller(s) for the event. In order to cover the costs we ask that a minimum number of book sales be guaranteed.

You will hear back from Becky Meloan, or you can contact her directly at (202)349-9811 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Do-it-Yourself Sales

To set up a Self-Sell event, please fill out this form as completely as possible. You will hear back from John Teague, or you can contact hiim directly (202)349-1187 or email@example.com.
3. Books as Gifts for Your Guest
If you'd like to offer the books as gifts for your guests and plan to order 25 or more copies, we can help.
