A Century of Modern Manicure

Buffet: 4:00 p.m.
Lecture: 5:00 p.m.

Author Suzanne Shapiro discusses her latest book, Nails: The Story of the Modern Manicure. Shapiro traces the origins of the modern manicure as a radical gesture in style and follows it through today's culture of ubiquitous nail salons and edgy experiments in nail art, showing how the manicure has reflected larger style trends as well as changing ideals of femininity.

Wear your favorite ring and share the story behind it with your table mates!
