Jamya tells us that her favorite books are the Dork Diaries series, beginning with Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell. She likes Dork Diaries because it's about a girl and she has this worst enemy/friend.

I was a fairly new Library Associate way back in October and my focus was to program my life away! I greatly enjoy uniting and engaging people, ideas, and experiences through creativity and conversation. There's something about providing learning opportunities through an artistic scope that just makes me all tingly inside.

John EdmondsJohn Edmonds is a fine art photographer with something to say. Living and working in Washington D.C., Edmonds creates art that colorfully “explores themes of masculine identity, beauty, race and sexuality. Fascinated by the veiling and unveiling of these identities, his work is as personal as it is universal, social and political.”

 Join us Monday, Jan. 27 at 6 p.m. to listen to the artist speak about his telling work. Food and drinks will be served. This program is free and open to the public.

THINK TANK is a new monthly forum to explore and discuss art and contemporary topics at the Dorothy I. Height/Benning Neighborhood Library.
