Meet the Author - The New Cottage

Meet the architect and author Katie Hutchison for a presentation of her latest book The New Cottage, published by Taunton Press in 2018.

The mere thought of "cottage" puts the mind at ease, as a cottage is where life is simple, comforting, and trueCottages are an informal, often hardy subset of small houses, generally possessing a visceral grab on homeowners' imaginations.

Book Discussion: What the Eyes Don't See

This year's Reading Across Rhode Island (RARI) selection is What the Eyes Don't See by Mona Hanna-Attisha, a powerful memoir of Mona's uncovering of elevated lead levels in Flint, Michigan's drinking water. The selection deals with themes of corporate greed, grassroots activism, environmental racism, sexism in the sciences, race relations, governmental coverup, and family. Find more about RARI here.
