Get the Home You Want, Without Moving

The Essex Library’s popular Centerbrook Architects’ Lecture Series kicks off its fourth year of talks by celebrated architects with an illustrated talk by Duo Dickinson, maverick architect and author, Friday December 2 at 7 p.m.

Dickinson will talk about his new book, Staying Put; Remodel Your House to Get the Home You Want. In this era of staying put, the idea of remodeling is ever more attractive. Duo will share his passion for saving money without sacrificing good design, and show examples of his design philosophy as it was explained by the New York Times: “Design it small, make it as beautiful as possible, and practice every trick in the book to keep it as cheap as possible”.

Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of Essex Books. The program will be held at Essex Meadows’ Hamilton Hall auditorium, and is free and open to all.  A wine and cheese reception begins at 6:30.  Essex Meadows is at 30 Bokum Road in Essex. To register for this talk or for more information, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560.
