We Are All Criminals

We Are All Criminals exhibit & event

Visit the library's exhibit space to see We Are All Criminals through the month of February. Photos and poetry featured in the exhibit explore the idea that while one in four people in the U.S. has a criminal record, four in four have a criminal history.

The exhibit is in conjunction with a keynote speech by author, creator, and activist Emily Baxter on Thursday, February 7 at 7pm in the Ballroom.
