October 19, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

NANCY SCHON is best-known for her iconic Make Way for Ducklings sculpture in Boston’s Public Gar­den. Based on Robert McCloskey’s book and visited by thousands of children and adults every year, it has become a beloved Boston landmark. In Make Way for Nancy, Schön explores her major public projects and com­missions, what inspired them, and what goes into making a beautiful and tactile work of public art.

Schön will be interviewed by ANITA DIAMANT, author of The Red Tent and The Boston Girl.
