·1 min read

Dec. 16—She Gathers Me: Networks Among Black Women Writers, a banner-style traveling exhibit, is on display at the Charles D. Switzer Public Library, 266 Roswell Street in Marietta, now through January 20.

In partnership with the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University, Georgia Public Library Service is touring the exhibit to libraries statewide through the summer of 2023. The exhibit program is supported in part by a federal grant to GPLS from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

She Gathers Me explores contemporary Black writers through photographs, letters, journals and calendars. The exhibit features Alice Walker, Audre Lorde, Pearl Cleage, Tayari Jones, Natasha Trethewey and others.

The exhibit was curated by Rose Library's Instruction Archivist Gabrielle M. Dudley, who is hopeful that the exhibition will raise awareness about Rose Library and increase use of the Black women writers' collections.

Rose Library is located in the Robert W. Woodruff Library, 540 Asbury Circle in Atlanta.
