Easter Weekend Closure: The library will be CLOSED this Friday, March 25 through Sunday, March 27 for Easter observance.
When we reopen, not only will we be revved up to support your study needs, but we also have a great lineup of events over the next few weeks!
Spring Events Lineup:
- Poetry Reading, Tuesday, March 29, 12:30 - 1:30 pm in the Library's Glass Lounge: The Writer’s Craft Reading Series presents Cecil Gisbombe, reading from his book, Prairie Style. Cecil won the American Book award for Prairie Style in 2008. He is a poet, essayist, and professor of English at University of California, Berkeley.
“Prairie Style is about the breakdown of location and voice. It lays out a landscape of habitations (Frank Lloyd Wright's designs for ‘servantless families,’ fox dens in an embankment, the two-mile long face of Chicago's Robert Taylor public housing project, etc.) and crosses and recrosses the line between poetry and prose. The book is an acknowledgement of the ‘terrible frankness’ of color, pleasure's distance, and the similarity of equivocation and argument. Prairie Style is the turn inland. ‘Inland, one needs something more racial, say bigger, than mountains.’”
Copies available for checkout. Light refreshments will be served.
