GOHI: Objects from the Gay Ohio History Initiative
Join history curator Emily Lang for a talk about the history and collection of the Gay Ohio History Initiative.

1950’s Recipes: Picnic Time!
Having a backyard barbeque and don’t know what to make? Jell-O salad has been a popular choice for decades. Many popular recipes today got their roots in the 1950’s, but others are more interesting than edible. Join Circulation Coordinator Carla Zikursh to talk about this and other popular 50’s food, as well as some recipes that are best left forgotten. Bring your favorite 1950’s recipes and food memories to share!
Fighting Such as We Had Not Seen Before: The Atlanta Campaign of 1864
This summer marks the 150th Anniversary of the Atlanta Campaign, one of the pivotal military campaigns of the Civil War.
