Happenings @ Hannon
A monthly e-newsletter from the William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University

October 2011 / Vol. 2 Iss. 2      

We're in the thick of Fall semester, and the library is packed!

I hope that all of our users in the building are finding what they came for, whether it's a quiet retreat to study, that one perfect article or book that you need, or research help from one of our expert librarians.

But October also brings with it a fantastic new line-up of speakers, events, and exhibits. Read on for more information. So, whether you're one of our regulars, or tempted to experience our building, services, or events for the first time, we look forward to seeing you at the library.

Faculty Pub Night: Carroll Kearley & Friends

Please join the Hannon Library and the Bellarmine Forum as we welcome Dr. Carroll Kearley, Emeritus faculty from the Department of Philosophy, as our guest for October's Faculty Pub Night.
Deity Alphabets book cover
For the past thirty years, Professor Kearley has been going almost every Wednesday to Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica. He talks to the homeless on the street and has established bonds with many of these people. He has written about them in a book of poems entitled
Deity-Alphabets, our featured publication for the evening.

The program will alternate quotes from a talk entitled, "The Way of the Cross -- Jesus Suffers in the Poor" given by Fr. Donald D. Merrifield, SJ, 11th president of Loyola Marymount University in 1976, and poems written by Professor Kearley. Father Tom Rausch, from Theological Studies, and Professor Katharine Free from Theater Arts will also participate in the reading. 

The event is free to all, with snacks and refreshments provided. We hope to see you there!

This exhibit will feature sculpture, paintings, prints, drawings, medallions, and postcards representing our greatest collections, including materials from the Robert and Miriam Kinsey Japanese Art Collection and the Werner Von Boltenstern Postcard Collection, on display with many other historical and archaeological artifacts housed within the library's vault.

The second annual Book Festival kicks off this month with a series of panels and performances all centered around Heroic Living: Discover Your Purpose and Change the World by Chris Lowney.
