“The Design of Childhood” is out!

Today is publication day for The Design of Childhood: How the Material World Shapes Independent Kids and I am very pleased to have it out there in the world.

You can check for upcoming book events here. New York City and New Canaan so far, but stay tuned for some Rust Belt city appearances into the fall.

Buy it here or at your local independent bookstore.

Along with the pieces linked in previous posts, today brings more chances to sample the contents.

Architect published an excerpt from my chapter on Schools, focused on project-based learning environments.

The Houston Chronicle published this Q&A, How can we design the world for children?

Google Design produced this thorough podcast, which includes a great list of additional reading.

Yesterday Curbed published this Q&A with Kelsey Keith. Kelsey will be interviewing me tonight at McNally Jackson Books, 76 N 4th Street, Williamsburg. Join us if you can.
