    You Need a Manifesto: How to Craft Your Convictions and Put Them to Work Winnetka Northfield Public Library District is proud to partner with FAN as a sponsor of this event to bring this programming to our patrons. To register for this virtual program: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/9016686140933/WN_b_vGdPrSRAeZ4HOX2fJIlQ We all need agency to feel the power and joy of acting in the face of challenge and opportunity. But we also need humility and restraint to ensure that we guard against hubris and harm. We need trusted and testable navigation tools to give us confidence in our creative power and cautiousness in carrying out our work. Instead of looking for answers, what we are all seeking are tools for navigating the increasingly complex, noisy, conflicted culture that we inhabit. A personal manifesto is one of those tools. In You Need a Manifesto: How to Craft Your Convictions and Put Them to Work, Charlotte Burgess-Auburn, MA, director of community at Stanford University’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the “d.school”), first defines the challenges of information overload we all experience today. Then she shows how to craft a personal creed that will help you face daily tasks and roadblocks and create more purpose in your work. Explanations and hands-on design-based exercises are based on vibrant quotes and excerpts from a curated collection of designers, artists, writers, scientists, and social activists. These quotes serve both as inspiration and material for the activities. Burgess-Auburn will be in conversation with Liz Gerber, Ph.D. (FAN ’13 and ‘16), a professor at Northwestern University, co-director of Northwestern’s Center for Human Computer Interaction Design, and faculty founder of Design for America. This event will be recorded and available on FAN's website and YouTube channel.

Her fourth, Midwest Made: Big, Bold Baking from the Heartland, was named a Best Baking Cookbooks of 2019 by The New York Times. She has also contributed food stories and recipes for The Wall Street Journal, Food52, Bon Appetit, The Kitchn, Real Simple, Midwest Living, Food and Wine, O Magazine, and many more.
