Please join the History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library on Oct. 11 from 4 to 6PM for an Open House made very special by the presence of famed printer Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr.

From 4 to 5PM, the esteemed printer will do a Q&A with the audience in Room 220 of the Main Library; a special exhibit of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library’s Kennedy holdings will also be on view in the space. Then, from 5 to 6PM, our guests will move with us to Room 246 to make keepsake prints (while materials last); enjoy toothsome refreshments; enjoy the genial atmosphere of the History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library; and purchase, if they wish, their own Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr. prints.

Kennedy is an alumnus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s top-ranked Printmaking MFA program. He is the subject of the documentary Proceed and Be Bold!

This event is free and open to the public!
