Lewis Hyde's books in the Library

As announced Lewis Hyde will give a lecture this Friday at MCAD.  His latest book is Common As Air, which was reviewed in the Sunday New York Times Review of books on August 22.  In it he addresses "the question of how our cultural commons, our shared store of art and knowledge, might be made compatible with our modern age of stringent copyright laws, intellectual property rights, and restrictive patenting."

This week the MCAD Library is highlighting Common As Air as well as other books written by Hyde from the collection: Trickster Makes This World and The Gift. They're all on display at the Circulation throughout the week.  Don't miss this important, free event!
