Black Ice

Yesterday I saw Black Ice, the wonderful exhibition of prints by Newfoundland artist David Blackwood.  It’s on at the Art Gallery of Ontario until June 12th.  I also recommend this beautiful book, available at Laidlaw Library:

Dancing between Identities

I’m looking forward to this evening’s event at University College about Midnight at the Dragon Café  (Judy Fong Bates’s novel, chosen by the Toronto Public Library for this year’s One Book campaign).  This event will feature a lecture by Julie Mehta, “Dancing between Identities: The Boston Cream Pie and Negotiating ‘Home’ “.  If you haven’t read the novel yet, Laidlaw Library owns four copies!

From Freud to Prozac

Andrew Scull (University of California, San Diego) will be at University College next week for a series of lectures, “From Freud to Prozac: American Psychiatry in the Twentieth Century,” April 11, 12 & 13 at 4:30 p.m. (this year’s Priestley Memorial Lectures in the History of Ideas).

Prof. Scull’s latest book is Hysteria: The Biography, available at Laidlaw Library. (Many of his other books are available at other UofT Libraries.)
