    Thanks in part to the TV show “Mad Men,” set mostly in 1960s Manhattan, the last decade has seen a resurgence of midcentury modern style. In fact, a 2011 article in MidCentury magazine claims that the show “has placed midcentury style firmly in the mainstream.” Norwich’s history with the retro aesthetic is the focus of a talk by Norwich Historical Society director Sarah Rooker. In “Mad for MidCentury Modern: A New Architectural Style Comes to Norwich,” she tells the story of the architects, artists and scholars who brought a dash of modernism to the traditional town during and after World War II. at Norwich Public Library in Norwich.
