David MacaulayHey, here’s some great news – author and illustrator David Macaulay is giving the Arbuthnot Lecture on Thursday evening, April 17, at 7 p.m. Central time in Madison, WI. He’s the creator of everything from Pyramid and Cathedral to Motel of the Mysteries.

Unfortunately, I can’t get that day off, and can’t afford to travel from Austin to Madison, and you probably can’t get that day off either – plus you probably wouldn’t want to fly anywhere right now even if you could, especially on American Airlines.

But, hey – it doesn’t matter, because if you go to this address at Madison’s South Central Library System site on Thurs at 7 p.m. Central, you can watch and hear the lecture via live streaming video on your own PC. It’s supposed to last about an hour. A streaming Arbuthnot – what a great idea! Be there online or be L-7.
