Best of Mod With a TWIST is a light-hearted but deep dive into some of the more obscure topics about the midcentury. You are guaranteed to chuckle, all the while learning something new and enjoying a glass of complimentary wine.
Included in the ticket price is a tour of the former manager's home at the Desert Star, a Class One Historic Property. This home has been featured in several books and is filled with vintage furniture and art. Designed by Howard Lapham in 1954.

Stephen Drucker, who will present "Eau de Midcentury Man: the golden age of bad cologne"
Greg Hough - Cowboys and Architects: Palm Springs stories
Laura J. Hein - Every Man a DaVinci: the paint by number craze in America
Kurt Cyr- Tiki Mania
