Park Ridge artist Rex Parker will present an illustrated program, “Frederic Goudy & H. G. Wells: The Time Traveler’s Typeface.” It explores a book publishing dream team: Frederic Goudy, “the titan of type” and H. G. Wells, the “time-traveler novelist,” and their remarkable collaboration on The Door in the Wall — a collection of thrilling short stories and the creation of a timeless typeface. Free and open to the public – all are welcome. Refreshments will be provided.
