Object Lessons series panel: Kim Adrian - Sock, Christopher J. Lee - Jet Lag, and William Germano - Eye Chart, moderated by Kati Stevens

Upcoming Event
Saturday, January 27, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Published in association with The Atlantic, Object Lessons is a series of short, smartly designed books that offer insight about ordinary things and celebrate the charm of objects we often take for granted. This sampler of recent highlights from the series features Kim Adrian, recipient of a P.E.N. New England Discover Award and author of The 27th Letter of the Alphabet, who finds in the lowly sock an anatomy lesson, a physics primer, a love letter, a weapon, a fetish, and a fashion statement. In his meditation on jet lag, Christopher J. Lee, a widely published writer and associate professor of history at Lafayette College, sees the malady as the epitome of today’s accelerated, technological moment. William Germano, Professor of English Literature at The Cooper Union and writer of a biweekly language blog for the Chronicle of Higher Education, frames our reading letters on an eye doctor's screen in the context of reading at large, whether we're navigating high literature or advertising iconography.

Moderating the panel will be Kati Stevens, Public Affairs Specialist at the United States Environmental Protection Agency, a fiction writer whose work has appeared in The Hairpin and The Billfold, and the author of the upcoming Object Lessons entry Fake.
