@ Washington University, Olin Library, 1 Brookings Drive, St. Louis, MO 63130
As part of the Library Faculty Book Talk series, Tim Bono will discuss “When Likes Aren’t Enough” (Grand Central Publishing). In his book, Bono tackles the ever-popular subject of happiness and well-being but reframes it for a younger reader, their families and communities, as they struggle with Instagram envy and high-stakes testing, college rejections and often a feeling of unworthiness. Bono is an assistant dean and lecturer in Psychological & Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. A reception will follow the discussion. Free and open to the public. Free

Seeing Other People

Thu., April 26, 5-8 p.m.

Seeing Other People considers the rhetoric of the constructed self as it is shaped by the act of gazing or being gazed upon. By pairing three historical paintings of women by men with contemporary portraits of women predominantly by women, the exhibit takes as its point of departure the notion that both reading and authoring representational images is a form of feminist resistance. It will include a reading and listening room for the public to engage, composed of books and vinyl LP’s that speak to the theme of female self-representation. The opening will feature music by DJ Agile One. free
