March Library Newsletter

March features Place Talks, which wraps up Season 6 on Thursday the 19th with the Burl Concentrate and Jonah Susskind. The February event was attended by as many as 75+ people, only about 40 of whom got to sit, so come early for a seat! Congratulations, Nicole and Charlie, for another blockbuster season!

Other supplemental features of March include Adrianne & Bryan’s quarterly Sunday hours on the 8th, followed by special Place Talks hours on Sunday the 15th. Extra hours!

Off-hours Library events in March include an SF State University class visit on March 5th and a music production evening late in the month.

Onward to April!
The Library will host an opening event on Sunday the 5th of April for resident painter James Gouldthorpe, who has been bending media by using print magazine imagery as source material for fine paintings, and will present large-format compositions made from many paintings at this event. The works will then be up for at least a week.

Further Onward: to May!
The Library will host a reading and chapbook release party on Sunday the 17th of May to celebrate the finished work of resident poet Renny Pritikin.

Also in May we are looking forward to the residency of powerhouse archivist, librarian, activist, writer, and artist Eira Tansey: Eira plans to spend up to three weeks in residence on research “related to archives, geospatial data, and climate change,” (to pull 8 words out of a detailed proposal).

Note that the March hosting calendar features special guest host Devin Smith, who will cover Wednesday the 18th for the co-founders when we are out of town. Thank you, Devin!

The March calendar is a collaborative effort of library hosts Monica, Jay, Carolee, Adrianne, Bryan, Nicole, Charlie, Devin, and MSP and RP!
