Byers' presentation will include a slide show and Q&A session. He will also display an exhibit of Shaker life in room box format as well as 1/12 scale miniature furniture. Byers, a lecturer in the SFSU Design and Industry Department, has been making and studying Shaker furniture for more than 30 years.
