Art Museum, Centennial Hall
"All Things Japanese: Make a Japanese Bound Book with Bill Hannan."  Join local artist Bill Hannan to create your own bound book in the Japanese style! Of the four workshops Bill has led as part of our celebration for The Year of the Book, this is the only one that will recreate an Eastern tradition of bookbinding rather than a Western example.  The book can be bound in such a way that will allow it to be read horizontally (as for most Western languages) or vertically (for Japanese and some other non-Western writings). In this style, the binding itself is exposed and acts as a decorative element, as well as a functional one.  Join Bill for an exploration of the similarities and differences between Eastern and Western bookbinding. Attendance is limited to 15.  Reserve your spot by contacting Art Museum Director, Sherry Maurer by email or by calling x7469. Questions?  Contact Sherry Maurer or Reference Librarian, Margi Rogal by email or by calling x7823.

7:00 PM – Lit Wits: Writers Read at Augustana: Eddy Harris, Memoir
Wallenberg Hall
"One of the hazards of telling your deeds…is that the marvels of them cannot be hidden; they rise to the surface like bubbles and burst with tiny explosions of excitement." Traveler, adventurer, seeker, Eddy Harris wrote these words about his experience writing Mississippi Solo, a recounting of his canoe trip down the length of the great river. He's also been to the American south on a motorcycle; returned to his boyhood home, Harlem, NY; and roamed the continent of Africa. Hear Eddy read from Mississippi Solo and other books on Thursday night. And what is Eddy's latest adventure? Come to the reading to find out. Reception to follow.
