Friends of the Library Signature Showcase

Friends of the Library Signature Showcase is the Library’s semi-annual lecture and discussion series. Focusing on the research of Columbia’s distinguished faculty, each event features a prominent author, scholar, or artist in conversation with the community.

Melissa Ann Pinney is our Fall 2015 Signature Showcase featured speaker. On December 1 from 5-7pm, Melissa will discuss her work as a photographer, and sign copies of her latest book, TWO, published by HarperCollins in April 2015. For more information, please visit Columbia Events.
