Maria Popova + Maira Kalman

Last January we featured a wonderfully enlightening and intimate conversation between Maria Popova (the brains, heart, and soul behind Brain Pickings), and the brilliant painter, writer, and thinker Maira Kalman. Both Maria and Maira are famous for their voracious and curious minds, so it’s no surprise that they’ve been very busy since their original Thread. Below, we are very happy to present their Thread: Unspooled, featuring annotations, updates, and deeper explorations of their fascinating exchange.
