Karen will present her lecture "The Bell Jar at 50" on 27 February 2013, at 3:30PM Global Heritage Hall, G01, Roger Williams University, Bristol, Rhode Island.
The exhibit, prepared by Christine S. Fagan, the Collection Development/Acquisitions Librarian at RWU, is free and open to the public and will run from 1 February to 10 March 2013. If you are anywhere near Bristol, do yourself a favor and visit the exhibit. If you are nowhere near Bristol: somehow please get there.
Along with Associate Curator of Rare Books Karen V. Kukil and Amanda Ferrara (Smith Class of 2013) and Christine Fagan, Heidi Benedict, and Liz Haines of Roger Williams University, I was honored to be a part of the exhibit installation crew, which is sponsored by The Professor John Howard Birss, Jr. Memorial Library Fund and was able to take photographs of all the good people involved as it took shape. Below is a selection of these images, which have had to be reduced in size so as to not show too much...
