Philadelphia-based small press Saturnalia Books presents its annual reading at the Athenaeum museum and library, featuring Bar-Nadav (Lullaby (With Exit Sign)), Emanuel (Noose and Hook), Kulik (Nowhere Fast), and Shapero (No Object).
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.
