Friends of the Library Signature Showcase: Jay Wolke

From 2000 to 2007, Jay Wolke photographed in the south of Italy to 
capture the complexity of a region that is colloquially known as  
Il mezzogiorno. What he found in this historic and often troubled 
landscape was an elaborate set of physical, social,and political forces 
manifested in an extraordinary tapestry of visual information.

Join us as he discusses the project and signs copies of his latest book,  
Architecture of Resignation, Photographs from the Mezzogiorno published 
by the Center for American Places (now Columbia College Chicago 
Press).  This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will 
be served.

Friday October 28, 2011 | 5:00-6:30pm

Jay Wolke is Professor and Chair of the Art + Design Department at 
Columbia College Chicago and has been an educator since 1980. He is

All Around the House: Photographs of American Jewish Communal Life
published by the Art Institute of Chicago, and Along the Divide: 
Photographs of the Dan Ryan Expressway, published by the Center for 
American Places.

Join us as Patricia Ann McNair, Fiction Writing faculty member reads from and discusses her debut story collection, The Temple of Air on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 6:30-8:00pm in the Library, 3rd Floor North.

From the teenagers who witness a tragedy at a carnival to the twins who run the local ice cream parlor, each of the eleven linked stories in this collection gives readers a glimpse of life in the small town of New Hope.  Unapologetically in your face, her stories pull you close enough to dig their way into your subconscious and leave you haunted.
