Lois Sherr Dubin will be speaking at the next meeting of the Textile Study Group of New York. For those who don't know her, she is the author of "The History of Beads from 30,000 B.C. to the Present", a comprehensive, illustrated history of beads that explores the use of beads as talismans, religious symbols, mediums of communication, and expressions of art. The book has been updated and was republished in October, 2009. I have heard her speak a number of times and have always been entertained as well as informed. Her are the details:
