Michael J. Rosen is the author of two new books of James Thurber’s drawings and fables. To celebrate the opening of the Thurber’s Columbus exhibit at Thompson Library in May, Rosen will discuss Thurber’s relationship with Columbus, his hometown and lifelong literary inspiration, from his childhood and time at OSU to his legacy today.
The lecture begins at 6:00 pm, followed by a reception and refreshments. Curators Jolie Braun and Eric Johnson will offer a tour of the exhibit at 7:00 pm.
