Join us in this quiet week for some hosted browsing time and tea service! We have lots of regular drop-in hours, plus one recently-added special event:
Friday evening, 7 p.m.:
The Wainwright Naked Hippie Tarot
From the website of publisher Kingsboro Press: “In the early 1970s, Jerry Wainwright began work on his own deck of tarot cards, photographing his friends, artists and musicians in San Francisco – nearly always naked, posed in various positions against homemade backdrops and with ad hoc props. Wainwright was a figure in the city’s storied counter-cultural legacy, who, as family-lore tells it, spent time in San Quentin State Prison for manufacturing LSD and may or may not have had a hand in recording Johnny Cash’s infamous performance there in 1969. Here, Wainwright’s tarot photographs are presented in their unedited totality for the first time.”
The Library adds: This book features text by Library Friend (Place Talks alum and regular researcher) Lane Goldszer. We look forward to sharing the evening with Lane and the other folks affilitated with Kingsboro Press.
