A Conversation with Jesmyn Ward

Online: Wednesday, October 12 

                 7-8pm

 

Shelbyville Public Library is joining libraries across the state of Illinois to host award-winning author, Jesmyn Ward. Ward will discuss how her literary vision and personal experiences address urgent questions about racism and social injustice. The event will be held virtually on Wednesday, October 12 at 7 pm. In 2017 Jesmyn Ward became the first woman and first person of color to win the National Book Award twice - joining the ranks of William Faulkner, Saul Bellow, John Cheever, Philip Roth, and John Updike. Ward’s novels, primarily set on Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, are deeply informed by the trauma of Hurricane Katrina. Her newest novel, the critically acclaimed Sing, Unburied, Sing, won the 2017 National Book Award.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a new statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).

Welcome to the 4th Annual IHLS Library Crawl.

We hope you have a fun time visiting new libraries and discovering what wonderful resources they each have in their collections. Take your card so you can check out material, then return the item(s) here and we will get it back to its home library!

You can pick up your Library Crawl Passport at the circulation desk. Once you have your passport, you are ready to begin. Simply pick out five or more libraries to visit. You have the entire month of October for your travels. 

Whenever you visit a new library, be sure to go to their main circulation desk and ask for a stamp in your passport. Show us the stamps in your passport by November 4, 2022 for a chance to win a prize.
