Frank Valadez and the Blue Ribbon Exhibitors, Chicago Metro History Education Center

For the past few years, a small number of local students have presented their History Fair projects at an early summer Newberry colloquium, and they’ve always been awesome. This year–for the third year in a row with the help of many people around the Newberry–three dozen History Fair projects will be on display in the Blue Ribbon Student Exhibition in the Newberry’s East Gallery from June 21 through July 19. Come to Ruggles Hall to hear a bit about the exhibition, meet some of the participating students, and walk through the gallery to view the projects with the student exhibitors.

The Newberry Library Colloquium is a weekly gathering of Newberry staff members, fellows, scholars-in-residence, and readers on Wednesday afternoon in the Towner Fellows’ Lounge. Refreshments are available at 3:30 pm and an informal presentation begins at 4 pm, followed by discussion. The talks are varied, but all relate to the Newberry collections in some way. Speakers may describe a current research project, highlight a particular collection, or discuss one of the Library’s many ongoing or special programs. The Colloquium is open to the public and no reservations are required.
