Illustrator and author David Macaulay will speak at the Coastal Institute about his use of research, illustration and humor to explain the intricacies of science, technology, architecture and anything else he knows very little about.
His update to the worldwide bestseller The Way Things Work, titled The Way Things Work Now, will be published in October, and features new material including touchscreens, flat screens, hybrid cars and 3D printers. He has earned many accolades including a Caldecott Medal and two Honor Awards, a MacArthur Fellowship (“Genius” Grant), and the Bradford Washburn Award, presented by the Museum of Science in Boston to an outstanding contributor to science.
Mr. Macaulay is a graduate, former professor, and trustee emeritus of the Rhode Island School of Design.
