REFORMATION PRINTING
Books and Pamphlets from Special Collections
Thomas Tredway Library

This display includes materials printed during the period of the Protestant Reformation that began in 1517 with Martin Luther's posting of the 95 Theses, and ended over a century later with Protestantism as an established part of European life. Included are examples of early persuasive pamphlets, the Augusburg Confesion (from which Augustana College derives its name), and Reformation bindings. These materials will be on display on the second floor of the library until the end of Winter Term.


IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE...AN AUGUSTANA CHRISTMAS
Special Collections

Celebrations and traditions surrounding the Christmas season at Augustana have proven to be popular and long lasting. Many of Augustana's traditions are directly influenced by Augustana's Swedish heritage, such as the Sankta Lucia Festival, Tomtegubben, and the SmörÄ¡asbord, while others, such as the Handel Oratorio society, are simply a genuine expression of the joyous atmosphere of the holiday season. This exhibit aims to trace the formation and practice of five of Augustana's most popular Christmas traditions. Curated by Leslie Nellis '11, this exhibit will be on display in Special Collections until mid-January.


CONVOCATION:  CHAD PREGRACKE "MAKING A DIFFERENCE: HELPING TO CLEAN AMERICA'S RIVERS"
Thursday, December 9, 2010
10:30 - 11:30 AM

Chad Pregracke grew up near Hampton, Illinois on the Mississippi River. His experiences led to his vision to clean up the Mississippi and his organization, Living Lands and Waters. During his talk, he will take the audience out on one of the world's greatest rivers--a journey filled with endless challenges and gripping adventures. His tale embodies the importance of setting goals (one river and one piece of garbage at a time) and illustrates how determination, hard work and persistence pay off.
