The headquarters of the East Side Institute was crowded with friends and colleagues and their friends and colleagues as we launched my new book, Vygotsky at Work and Play on January 23. We interrupted the chatter of conversation and book signing with a short program. Rafael Mendez, my friend and co-editor (of Psychological Investigations) hosted and shared the importance of the ideas presented in the book to his work as a psychology professor and social therapist. Then Ana Marjanovic-Shane, a noted Vygotskian/cultural historical activity theory (CHAT) theorist and practitioner, spoke—giving what more than one guest said was a fabulous and fascinating lesson on Vygotsky. Here are some photos from the festivities.
