Through a series of quite fortunate events, Lemony Snicket, literary superstar and character mysterioso, will grace the Chicago Humanities Fesival stage. Or perhaps it will be Snicket’s alter ego, Daniel Handler. In any case this will be your very best chance to get the scoop from an individual quite closely affiliated with the compulsively readable serial novels A Series of Unfortunate Events and All the Wrong Questions. Come prepared with all the right questions. Complimentary copies of the September issue of Poetry will be available, featuring Handler’s portfolio of favorite children’s poems.
Co-sponsored with the Chicago Humanities Festival
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.
