Join Jaime Snyder, Co Executor of the Estate of Buckminster Fuller (& BFI Co Founder) to discuss a new book from the Estate, The Sense of Significance: The Friendship Between Christopher Morley and Buckminster Fuller.

This book chronicles the close friendship of Christopher Morley, a well-known writer, journalist and broadcaster, with the scientist and inventor Richard Buckminster Fuller (Bucky).

From their first meeting in 1934 to Morley’s death in 1957, they kept in close contact through meetings, shared travels, and correspondence. This book records the progress of that friendship with quotations from letters, diaries, and interviews with Bucky himself. It was written with Bucky’s active participation between 1975 and 1982, and is now published for the first time.

Jaime is joined by David McConville, Cosmographer, Co-Founder, Spherical, and former Executive Director of BFI.
