The Illustrated History of the Snowman: Bob Eckstein with Lenore Skenazy

From the Dark Ages to 20th-century kitsch, the snowman—that anthropomorphic figure made of ice—pops up in rare prints, paintings, movies, advertising and every other art form imaginable.  Whether represented as the frosty, jolly stereotype to something more sinister, learn what the snowman has to say about the humans that made him.

Bob Eckstein provides this history alongside over two hundred illustrations. The award-winning illustrator and writer, New Yorker cartoonist, and author of Footnotes from the World’s Greatest Bookstores will be joined in conversation by Lenore Skenazy, president of the non-profit Let Grow and founder of Free-Range Kids, which launched the anti-helicopter parenting movement.
