Dee Williams’s life changed in an instant, with a near-death experience in the aisle of her local grocery store. Diagnosed with a heart condition at age forty-one, she was all too suddenly reminded that life is short, time is precious, and she wanted to be spending hers with the people and things she truly loved. The book is a meditation on the benefits of slowing down, scaling back, and appreciating the truly important things in life.

McKee Library is excited to welcome author Ben Tarnoff to McKee Library on October 24 at 2 pm. All are invited and welcome to attend! Convocation credit will be awarded.

New Photography Display

McKee Library is currently featuring a photography display by José Galvez of Latinos in America.

"For over 40 years, José Galvez has used black and white film to create a powerful and unparalleled historical record of the Latino experience in America. His compelling work, done with respect and pride and no pretense, captures the beauty of daily life. For José, photographing Latinos is not a one-time project or “current passion” but a lifelong commitment. He photographs nothing else. He is someone whose personal experience, love of family, and cultural knowledge have led him to capture the Latino experience with dignity, respect, and a deep understanding of the stories behind the images.” http://www.josegalvez.com/photos.html
