All experience levels are welcome to a monthly book group moderated by library staff. In 2012, the library celebrates Poetry’s centennial by discussing a title from a contributor to that month’s issue. In June, the book club discusses Ruth Stone’s What Love Comes To. Space is limited to 15 participants.
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.
