Author Talk and Signing: "My Creative Space" by Donald M. Rattner, Architect

Did you know that the color of your walls, the shape of your furniture, and the amount of light in your workspace can all impact the quality of your writing?

Architect Donald M. Rattner delves into these and other elements of the built environment that scientists have found to positively influence creative task performance. The heavily illustrated talk will draw from his newly published book “My Creative Space: How to Design Your Home to Stimulate Ideas and Spark Innovation,” copies of which will be available for sale and signing following the presentation.
