Artist Ralph Steadman is known for his creative collaboration with writer Hunter S. Thompson, matching outrageous illustrations to Thompson’s gonzo writing. Beyond that partnership, Steadman’s career spans over 60 years; this summer, the Library is among a few U.S. sites hosting a touring retrospective exhibit of over 100 of his original works.
LGBT Pride Month in June commemorates the Stonewall riots in New York's Greenwich Village, which ignited the gay rights movement in the United States in 1969. In observance of Pride Month, the Library spotlights LGBTQIA+ book recommendations, film offerings, and other resources.
