Beth Prindle, curator of the "John Adams Unbound" exhibit now on view at Drake University's Cowles Library, will give a lecture on the president's book collection on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The talk, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in the Cowles Library Reading Room, 2725 University Ave., Des Moines, Iowa.
"John Adams Unbound," is a traveling exhibit that includes photo reproductions of many of Adams' books and personal effects. It aims to give viewers an insight into a founding father wrestling with intellectual and political ideas throughout his life.
Prindle is the manager of the John Adams Library Project at the Boston Public Library. She holds degrees from Stanford and Harvard and oversaw all content and development of the John Adams Library companion Web site, www.johnadamslibary.org, which provides access to digital copies of Adams' catalog and books.
"John Adams Unbound" is sponsored by Drake's "Citizens Arise!" series, a multi-year initiative that aims to inspire students, teachers and citizens to responsible citizenship.
"John Adams Unbound" has been organized by the Boston Public Library and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. This traveling exhibition has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: great ideas brought to life.
