We hope you're enjoying our Breakfast Serial, A Long Walk to Water, weekends in the Centre Daily Times!
The next book we invite you to read is A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf. In the book, Virginia Woolf discusses why it is that men, and not women, have always had power, wealth, and fame. She suggests two keys to freedom: fixed income and one's own room.
Our Summer Read is in coordination with the Palmer Museum of Art and the Penn State Libraries. The Palmer Museum is currently having an exhibit on the Bloomsbury Artists. The Bloomsbury Group, of which Virginia Woolf was a member, were artists, writers, economists and art critics who met for intellectual discussion in the Bloomsbury area of London in the early 20th century.
The Palmer Museum has planned a number of special events to go with this exhibit. Click here to find out about them.
Join the book discussion with special guest Dr. Christopher Reed, co-curator of the exhibit and PSU professor of English and visual culture. Tuesday, August 17, 6:30 p.m. in Schlow Library's Community Room.
Schlow Library has multiple copies of A Room of One's Own available for checkout, as well as other books on or by Bloomsbury Group members.
