8:30 AM to 4:30 PM - Morris Library Hall of Presidents Exhibit Space What did Americans read for cheap thrills before the comic book era? Welcome to the world of Dime Novels and Penny Dreadfuls--colorful magazines for the masses promising action-filled tales of heroes and villains. A new exhibit in the Hall of Presidents and Chancellors explores this world of lurid adventure. Curator David Bond chose examples from our own collection--titles like Brave and Bold Weekly, Pluck and Luck, Work and Win and the Buffalo Bill Weekly--to illustrate the heyday of this low-brow literature. Enjoy the evocative covers and learn why civic leaders condemned the genre as a pathway to depravity. Open to the public weekdays from 8:30 to 4:30.
