September 11: In Our Own Words

In remembrance of the tragic events of September 11 2001, the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County is planning to host a major program and display two exhibits at the Main Library.

September 11: In Our Own Words

Diana Duncan Holmes & Timothy Riordan

Join poet Timothy Riordan and his wife, visual artist Diana Duncan Holmes as they share their book, Foreign Correspondence, a 3 x 2 ft. artist book, reflecting their thoughts about the aftermath of September 11. The book features Timothy’s literary responses to Diana’s artwork, as well as his poem published in North American Review. The program will be held in the Reading Garden of the Main Library on September 11 at 7:00 p.m. Bring your poetry or prose to share with others during the program. Selected submissions are posted on our website.

The Longest Day: Ohio Journalists at Ground Zero

The Public Library, in cooperation with the Cincinnati Society of Professional Journalists, will display an exhibit examining on-the-scene coverage of the attacks of September 11. Included in the display are 100 Ohio newspaper front pages, extra editions, and special sections.

Posters 4 Peace

Posters on exhibit in the Atrium of the Main Library during the month of September were selected from over 700 created at a group site to promote healing through art. Children, teens, adults, and families contributed designs relating to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, as well as the riots in Cincinnati in April of 2001.
