Forever Unfinished: Ribbon Cutting and Gallery Walk

Join the exhibit creators for a ribbon cutting and a short tour of Forever Unfinished: Making and Remaking a Public University. The University of Michigan was founded in 1817 as a public institution, a concept for which there were few models. What makes a university public? What should it look like? Whom should it serve? Who should have access to its resources, and where should those resources come from?

Paul Dimond on “The Belle of Two Arbors: Researching the Historical Novel in Three Ann Arbor Libraries"

A sweeping saga told in the voice of an unforgettable heroine, "The Belle of Two Arbors" brings two places vividly to life: a growing “downstate” town driven by a public university striving for greatness, and a small “up north” community seeking prosperity while preserving its natural heritage. Spanning the first half of the twentieth century, Belle’s remarkable story is interweaved with accounts of historical events as well as memorable appearances by some of our favorite poets, including Emily Dickinson, W. H. Auden, and Robert Frost.
