LUAC Program Preparation for the Lilly Library - Members of LUAC have an opportunity to work with Rebecca Bauman to plan a public reading or other program to promote the incredible collections of the Lilly Library. For example, in February last year the Lilly Library offered a program where the love letters of famous or historically significant people were read. We will discuss ideas at the January meeting and via email for a similar program that LUAC can propose and participate.
