Last Wednesday I went to hear Steven Pinker speak about his book “The Sense of Style” at Powell’s books in Portland Oregon. www.powells.com and this is the sketch I did in my sketchbook while Mr. Pinker talked. The quotes are what I think I heard him say. (Errors are mine, all mine.) There was a digital slide show – so some of the quotes are from what I saw on the screen as it flashed by in a nanosecond.
Twice I’ve checked out “The Sense of Style” from my local library. Now I own a signed copy! Wahooo! I’ve found it a good resource for my artist-writer-creative-type efforts. You can get or see more about the book here: http://www.powells.com/biblio?isbn=9780143127796
