Author Event: Richard Cahan

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room
In 1942, the U.S. sent 109,000 residents of Japanese ancestry to detention centers. Strangely, this human rights tragedy was richly documented by acclaimed, government-hired photographers. Their images--many of them never before seen--were combined with firsthand survivor recollections by photo historians Richard Cahan and Michael Williams in their book Un-American: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War II: Images by Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and Other Government Photographers (CityFiles Press, 2016). Mr. Cahan will share images and passages from Un-American and sign copies, which will be available for sale at the event.

After its Chicago debut, the exhibition travels to the Grand Palais in Paris. Please join us as Glencoe resident Allison Perelman, a research associate at the Art Institute of Chicago who has worked on the exhibition since its inception five years ago, discusses the important themes and artworks of the show and how they were brought to life in the galleries.

Women Who Read Are Dangerous: Literary Ladies in the Age of Impressionism

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library

The idea of a woman reading Flaubert’s masterpiece Madame Bovary in nineteenth century France was scandalous. Ladies were not supposed to enjoy the latest novel—it might give them radical thoughts! Tish Robinson presents the intriguing, often humorous history of “la liseuse” (the female reader), illustrated with paintings by the Impressionists and their colleagues.
