Kidd offers insight during campus visit

Novelist and famed book cover designer Chip Kidd visited campus for a talk at Waterman Theatre in September.

Novelist and famed book cover designer Chip Kidd has a hard time keeping a straight face as he poses Sept. 15 with autograph-seeker Casi Tredo, a junior graphics design major. Kidd, author of ORI selection "The Learners," spoke to a full house at Waterman Theatre, displaying his wit and versatility -- for example, he mimicked the Wicked Witch of the West and a newborn hamster, among other shticks -- in a presentation that began with footage of the infamous 1961-62 obedience experiments conducted by Stanley Milgram at Yale University.
