3:45 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.  – Year of the Book "Book Studies" lecture series
Tredway Library, 2nd floor, south end
Cynthia Empen, Director of the Augustana Visual Resources Collection

In antebellum America, the public's interest in biographies of well-known Americans combined with a new craze for personal portraits to form a new sense of visual expression in book design.  Notable literary women could achieve celebrity status within this developing culture, and the illustrated portrait helped to mediate contradictions between the notion of women as public figures and the ideology of a woman's "true" sphere.

Please join Cynthia Empen, Director of the Augustana Visual Resources Collection, for an examination of three antebellum books embellished with portraits of literary women and their role in fostering an emerging ideal of modern womanhood.

Refreshments and conversation will begin at 3:45. 

This is the second presentation in the year-long "Book Studies" lecture series, part of "From Parchment to Pixels: The Year of the Book."  The next presentation in the series, given by Reference Librarian Margi Rogal, will take place during Week One of winter term.  Hope to see you there!

8:00 p.m. – CUBOM Java Club featuring "Rudy Currence"
Brew by the Slough, Tredway Library
Innovative and classic, Rudy Currence is a powerful, unique voice in today's music scene. Rudy sings with power and passion, writes beautiful soulful lyrics, produces complex music, and plays several instruments including the keyboard and guitar. Multitalented yet humble and soft-spoken this young man already possesses an easy charm on and off the stage. His musical background is very diverse, spanning genres including R&B, gospel, jazz and blues, folk, pop and classical. His style has been called a mix of the soul-stirring classics like Stevie Wonder, Donnie Hathaway and Marvin Gaye with modern edginess of artists like India Arie, Avril Lavigne and Alicia Keyes. Rudy has had two songs recorded by Mya for her recent CD release and had a song included on the soundtrack for Tom Cruise’s Minority Report. Rudy will one day leave a musical legacy behind for generations to come.
