Join member Carol Bryant to explore the opening of a new exhibition at the Newberry Library, followed by a self-hosted lunch at Tempo Cafe. According to the website, “A Show of Hands focuses on people, cultures, and technology to illustrate how handwriting has been taught, reproduced, and reimagined over the past five hundred years. Displaying a range of books and manuscripts from the Newberry’s collection, the exhibition makes the role of handwriting in the age of print newly legible.” Come enjoy one of the city’s best free cultural and historical resources, which also has an excellent gift shop!
