"Hello, Dear Enemy!" Picture Books for Peace and Humanity

Hello, Dear Enemy: Picture Books for Peace and Humanity will be in the library from January to March of 2019. This traveling exhibit is on loan from the International Youth Library in Munich, Germany and has been around the world. We are thrilled to host the exhibit and dismayed by its continued relevance.

The exhibit is divided into four themes: Experiences of War, Destruction, and Displacement; Power Struggles and the Origin and Escalation of Violence; Prejudice, Ostracism, and Imagined Enemies; Utopias of Peace and Anti-War Books. Posters on display showcase provocative images and quotes from the books.
