Cleveland Memory's "Beet Lady" Rose Thomas Featured in Poster for Archives Month in Ohio.
Every year in October, the Society of Ohio Archivists sponsors "Archives Month in Ohio" in order to bring awareness to the rich historical materials contained in the state's libraries, museums, and historical organizations. The theme for Archives Month 2012, "Peoples of Ohio," offers archival centers across Ohio an opportunity to feature the diverse groups and cultures that are or have been part of Ohio's population.
The 2012 Archives Month poster, designed by Tutti Jackson of the Ohio Historical Society, commemorates this theme by combining images contributed from 10 archives and libraries in the state to create a visual pastiche of Ohio's rich ethnic heritage. One of the photos featured on the poster is Cleveland Memory's own "beet lady," Rose Thomas as photographed in 1947 showing off her beets at the West Side Market. The photo is part of the Cleveland Press Collection in Special Collections at the Michael Schwartz Library, Cleveland State University.
Friends of the Library 2012-2013 Book Discussions
The Friends of the Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library presents its 2012/2013 Brown Bag Book Discussion Series. The first discussion features Their Eyes were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston on Thursday September 13 from 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. in the Michael Schwartz Library, Rhodes Tower, room 503. The discussion is in collaboration with the Academic Conference titled "Watching God and Reading Hurston*," which celebrates the 75th Anniversary of the publication of Their Eyes Were Watching God, one of the most important works of twentieth-century American literature. Meet Conference Director and Associate Professor of History at CSU, Dr. Regennia Williams, who will lead the conversation.
Zora Neale Hurston's beloved 1937 classic is an enduring Southern love story sparkling with wit, beauty, and heartfelt wisdom. Told in the captivating voice of a woman who refuses to live in sorrow, fear, or foolish romantic dreams, it is the story of fair-skinned, fiercely independent Janie Crawford, and her evolving selfhood through three marriages and a life marked by poverty, trials, and purpose. A true literary wonder, Hurston's masterwork remains as relevant and affecting today as when it was first published - perhaps the most widely read and highly regarded novel in the entire canon of African American literature. Their Eyes Were Watching God has been included in the Library of Congress exhibition "Books That Shaped America" as it reflects "our nation's unique and extraordinary literary heritage."
Refreshments will be provided.
Please call 216-875-9734 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the book discussion.
