The Seattle Public Library presents architect Deborah Pierce on how to make a home accessible Oct. 21

Architect Deborah Pierce

Architect Deborah Pierce will give a visual presentation featuring case studies from her book, "The Accessible Home: Designing for All Ages and Abilities," from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21 at The Seattle Public Library, Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 1, Microsoft Auditorium.


The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $6 on weekends.


"The Accessible Home" goes beyond ramps and grab-bars to help aging baby boomers, or those facing disabilities, accomplish home accessibility on a deeper level.


Pierce is founding partner, project architect and firm manager of Pierce Lamb Architects in Newton, Mass. Architectural accessibility has been her special focus, and she gives lectures on the topic frequently.


This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, media sponsor The Seattle Times, and presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Co. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
