Saturday, June 25th, 10:00 AM
The just-announced third Children's Poet Laureate, J. Patrick Lewis, joins the nation's second Children's Poet Laureate, Mary Ann Hoberman, as well as inaugural Children's Poet Laureate Jack Prelutsky in a reading.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
