Chris West, the author of A History of America in Thirty-six Postage Stamps, explored America's rich philatelic history. From George Washington's dour gaze to the charging buffalo of the western frontier and Lindbergh's soaring biplane, American stamps are a vivid window into the country's extraordinary and distinctive past. The lecture was followed by a reception and book signing, with the first 100 attendees receiving a free copy of the book.
