Person Place Thing with Tobias Frere-Jones

October 3, 2019 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 / $10 for Members
Randy Cohen

Join us as Person Place Thing host Randy Cohen interviews the award-winning typeface designer and lecturer Tobias Frere-Jones in a live recording of the popular public radio series from the New York Transit Museum.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing with particular meaning to them. The result: surprising stories from great talkers and thinkers.


Photography and video recording are permitted at the Transit Museum. However, tripods, stands, selfie sticks, and external lights may not be used.  All photographs taken are for personal use only and permission to photograph may be revoked at any time.

Refunds are not available for ticketed programs. Should you be unable to attend, the full price of unused tickets may be treated as a donation to the Transit Museum and is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
