Author and TV host Eric Gorges says "Despite our technological advances, we’re busier than ever, our lives more frazzled. That’s why the handmade object, created with care and detail, embodying a history and a tradition, is enormously powerful. It can cut through so much and speak in ways that we don’t often hear, or that we’ve forgotten." Eric joins us to discuss his new book "A Craftsman's Legacy" and why working with our hands is so powerful.

You can see Eric Gorges, author of "A Craftsman’s Legacy: Why Working with Our Hands Gives Us Meaning", in conversation with Tom Gralewicz, co-founder of Milwaukee Makerspace, today, May 8 at 7pm at Milwaukee Makerspace (2555 S Lenox Street).
