    David Macaulay coming to Middlebury

    David Macaulay is renowned for his intricate drawings explaining everything from how cathedrals were built to the inner workings of the human body. But he may be best known for The Way Things Work, first published in 1988. A 1991 Caldecott Medal winner and 2006 MacArthur “Genius Award” Fellow, the British-born illustrator now calls Norwich home.


    Macaulay will talk about his work and vision at the Pierson Library in Shelburne on Wednesday, December 11th at 7:00 pm. In conjunction with his talk, Pierson’s Community Art Gallery is hosting a show of Macaulay’s original works spanning from the early 1980’s to the present.
