Civil War ExhibitWelcome to Spring Semester 2011! As your classes are getting underway, we are developing a full slate of exhibits and programs to educate, inspire, and entertain you. Here’s a sample of what’s ahead:

  • “Echoes of the War: The Civil War Sesquicentennial,” an exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. Civil War. It runs from January to June in the Donor Hall.  Several lectures will be held in conjunction with the exhibit (time and place TBA).
  • “Sources of Conflict: Researching War in Special Collections” is an exhibit that features materials on the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I and II, Spanish Civil War, and the Vietnam War. It is located in the area outside Special Collections on the 4th floor of the Library Addition.
  • This year also marks an anniversary for the Peace Corps—it’s their 50th—and they will be sponsoring an exhibit in the Reference Services area this March.
  • We have a lot of authors visiting us this spring, including David Kirby on March 24, Nikola Madirov on April 18, and Rikki Ducornet on May 9. The Hugh Hyde Living Writers Series begins next month, with Richard Katrovas presenting a reading on February 10, Joe Haske and Eric Miles Williamson on February 16, Susan Conley on March 3, Glover Davis on March 15, and Harold Jaffe on April 13.

I’ll be posting more information on these events as it becomes available.
