Banned Books Week Recap
Between September 30 and October 6, over 125 members of the LMU community joined us in promoting awareness of Banned Books Week, either by visiting our Banned Bookmobile at convo hour, checking out a new or old favorite banned or challenged book found in the stacks, video-recording a read-out, or visiting Archives & Special Collections. The Loyolan editorial board even chimed in with their support of our programming to bring awareness to this important topic.

We will be sharing all of the photographs, videos, and articles of the past week's activities with our colleagues at the American Library Association, so that our LMU faces and voices may become part of the broader national effort to protect our collective rights to read. 

Huge thanks to everyone who participated! We'll be announcing the t-shirt winners shortly. We had a blast, and hope you enjoyed it (and maybe even learned something along the way). Wear your READ buttons with pride, Lions!

Pub Night: The Ethics of Abortion
Ethics of Abortion
Hannon Library's Faculty Pub Night series continues on October 16, with a talk by Professor of Philosophy Christopher Kaczor

At 5:30 p.m., Kaczor will be discussing his recent work, The Ethics of Abortion: Women's Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice (Routledge 2010),

which has received high praise from peer reviewers for its judicious representation of the differing positions taken on this complex and often contentious topic

 
This event is free and open to the public, and pub snacks and refreshments will be served. Copies of Kaczor's work will be available for sale and signing. 
 
New Exhibition: Crude Reflections

Crude Reflections

 

Photographer Lou Dematteis took his camera into Ecuador's Amazon rainforest and brought back images of the exquisite beauty of the land and its indigenous peoples. He also brought back a darker perspective - shocking images of the devastating effects of Chevron's oil extraction practices, both on the environment and on the people who inhabit the region.

 

Dematteis's provocative work, along with that of photographer and activist John Quigley, will be on display at the WIlliam H. Hannon Library from October 22 through December 14. 

 

On Thursday, November 1, the William H. Hannon Library and the Bellarmine Forum are hosting a special evening of exhibit viewing and discussion with the photographers and LMU faculty about the implications that their work has for all of us as citizens of a global economy and stewards of an ever-changing planet. 

 

6:00 p.m.  /  Exhibit viewing 

6:30 p.m.  /  Program & panel discussion (Von der Ahe Suite)

8:00 p.m.  /  Reception (level 3 atrium)

 

Music, hors d'oeuvres, and refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover...

Human LibraryOn Thursday November 8, LMU will be the first university on the west coast to host a Human Library.

 

Between 12-4 p.m., on the Jazzman's Café patio at Hannon Library, the LMU community will have the opportunity to check out Books, just like a regular day in the life of our library. But there is one significant difference. The Books in the Human Library are human beings, and each Book and Reader will have the opportunity to engage in unique, individual dialogue about the human experience.

 

As a part of the 2012 Bellarmine Forum, the Books available to check out on November 8 reflect a broad spectrum of life experiences related to health and self-image, including addiction, alternative approaches to healing, cancer, environmental activism, perceptions of gender, international humanitarian aid, and more.
