Friends of the Library Signature Showcase: Jay Wolke

From 2000 to 2007, Jay Wolke photographed in the south of Italy to 
capture the complexity of a region that is colloquially known as  
Il mezzogiorno. What he found in this historic and often troubled 
landscape was an elaborate set of physical, social,and political forces 
manifested in an extraordinary tapestry of visual information.

Join us as he discusses the project and signs copies of his latest book,  
Architecture of Resignation, Photographs from the Mezzogiorno published 
by the Center for American Places (now Columbia College Chicago 
Press).  This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will 
be served.
