Voices of the Civil War Speak at LMU

All semester long, the William H. Hannon Library is host to a series of exhibitions and events commemorating the sesquicentennial of the ending of the Civil War. 

The 2015 series kicks off on Thursday February 5 at 6 p.m. with the opening program and reception for the Archives and Special Collections exhibition Not Silent: Finding Voices in Civil War Artifacts.

The opening features a keynote by historian Dr. Ronald C. White, Jr., "The Voice of Abraham Lincoln: The Second Inaugural Address."

Dr. White will explore Lincoln's voice, the role of oratory in the nineteenth century, and the value of words then and now. 

The program - which is free and open to the public - is followed by a hosted reception and exhibition viewing, accompanied by a performance of Civil War era violin music. 

RSVP here, or call 310.338.4235.

Voices of the Civil War Speak at LMU is sponsored by the LMU Office of the President, the Departments of Classics and History, the Office of Black Student Services, and the William H. Hannon Library.


1/26 The Burglars

One night in 1971, eight ordinary Americans stole every single file from an FBI office near Philadelphia, PA. The burglary uncovered evidence that was the beginning of the end of the mythical FBI the bureau's director, J. Edgar Hoover, had constructed in the American mind over nearly a half century.

For over forty years, the identity of the burglars was unknown, despite being the subjects of one of the lengthiest FBI investigations in history. Ultimately their actions forced Congress - long intimidated by Hoover - to acknowledge the FBI director's illegal and damaging influence.

At this special event, LMU President David Burcham will moderate a discussion between a journalist and two of the burglars themselves, who will share their stories about this remarkable event, their motivations and life after the burglary, and discuss the critical issues of privacy and abuse of government power that continue today.

Monday January 26 / 6 p.m. / University Hall 1000

Blind Date with a Book
Whether or not you have a date for Valentine's Day, we'll have some fun romance (and anti-romance) stories for you to take a chance on the week before Valentine's Day. 

As you're walking through the library lobby in February, keep an eye out for Blind Date With a Book, along with a few other pop-up opportunities to create Valentines and related gifts inspired by postcards and other items from our collections.
2/11 author event: Boris Fishman

Add a description  

Join Hannon Library and Jewish Studies for an author talk and book signing with the talented Boris Fishman, author of A Replacement Life


Fishman's debut novel is a provocative, soulful, and sometimes hilarious story of a failed journalist asked to do the unthinkable: forge Holocaust-restitution claims for old Russian Jews in Brooklyn, New York.


Wednesday February 11 / 3 - 4:30 p.m. / Von der Ahe Suite / RSVP


This program is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served, and copies of A Replacement Life will be available for sale and signing.
