A classic toy designer will discuss his new memoir on September 27

Legendary toy inventor Jeffrey Breslow will join a live chat about his new memoir, “A Game Maker’s Life: A Hall of Fame Game Inventor and Executive Tells the Inside Story of the Toy Industry,” at 5 p.m. Tuesday, September 27. , hosted by Lewes Public Library and Browseabout Books.

Millions of people around the world have played with games and toys invented by Jeffrey Breslow and his partners, from Simon to Operation to Mousetrap. In a gripping memoir, Breslow details how flashes of inspiration, followed by hard work and ingenuity, brought these games to life. Along the way, he reveals how he successfully managed profits during industry transitions and describes the challenge of getting his employees through the tragedy of a fatal workplace shooting.

Breslow has spent more than 41 years inventing toys and games since earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois in 1965. At 34, he became the youngest managing partner of Marvin Glass and Associates, the world’s first toy design firm. He was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame in New York in 1988.
