Reading 1911: Librarians Explore the Centennial
1911 books crop

What were people reading during this time when William H. Taft was our president? When the U.S. population was 93,863,000, there were 46 stars in our flag, the cost of a first-class stamp was only $0.02, and the U.S. was crossed by plane for the first time -and it only took 50 days!  


Each month during LMU's Centennial Year, one of our librarians will look at a notable book published during 1911, and give you a glimpse of what people were reading when our institution was in its infancy.  


September: Under Western Eyes, by Joseph Conrad. Review by Glenn Johnson-Grau 


October: Jennie Gerhardt, by Theodore Dreiser. Review by Kristine Brancolini 


Coming up:

Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton

The Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Pierce

The Outcry, by Henry James

Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie


And more...


Are you interested in reading along with us, or even submitting your own 1911 review? Let us know! 


Strangers No Longer: Ukrainian Catholics and Orthodox Remember the Holodomor

Holodomor MemorialAll are invited to join the Huffington Ecumenical Institute for an evening of liturgy and discussion centered on the famine in Ukraine of 1932-1933 (the Holodomor).

The library is hosting an exhibit of artwork illustrating the Holodomor and a documentary film screening for the first part of this event. Following this, guests will make their way to University Hall for an ecumenical memorial service for the victims of the tragedy and a discussion with reflections on the way in which memorializing the genocide has brought together Ukrainians of different faith traditions in the United States.

2:45 p.m.: Documentary screening on the Holodomor and Q&A with survivor (Hannon Library Von der Ahe Family Suite, Level 3)

She explained, " [I] took these pictures on the way to class the other day... accidental multiple exposures, but a good impression of the Library."

Rachel, we agree!
