A. Krista Sykes will talk to us about the beloved Yale professor of the history of art and architecture after the recent publication of her biography, Vincent Scully: Architecture, Urbanism, and a Life in Search of Community. Krista is an independent architectural writer, editor, and researcher. She holds degrees from Princeton and Harvard, so we’ll be joined by alums from those schools. More about Krista here.

This is a great reason to visit the beautiful and historically important Redwood Library if you’ve never been there before. Founded in 1747 and intended to bridge the distance between Yale and Harvard, it is America’s oldest public lending library.
