Did you know that the library has cookbooks? With winter and the holidays approaching, my colleague Erica and I have decided to share the Bentley Library cookbook collection with you for culinary inspiration.

We’ve chosen books about cuisines of specific countries and regions, dietary choices, and food items, to name a few ways the display can be sliced and diced (pun intended, of course!). We’ve also selected a few chef memoirs, biographies, kitchen helps and food science titles, and some recent films on DVD.

To feast your eyes on what we’re offering, come to the Library to browse the display, look at the entire list in the catalog (if you’d like, click the “Request” link to place an item on hold) or view selected display titles on Pinterest. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please ask at the Reference Desk.

Bon appetit!

Please join us in the McGladrey Art Gallery for the opening of an exhibit commemorating the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall:

The Virtual Wall: A 25th Anniversary Commemoration of the
Fall of Communism in Germany

Monday, November 17 at 4:00 p.m.

Introduction by Dan Everett, Dean of Arts and Sciences
Opening remarks by Rolf Schütte, German Consul General of New England

This exhibit includes two pieces. One piece is the “Virtual Wall”, an interactive art installation created by Tamiko Thiel and Teresa Reuter, which allows viewers to walk along the Berlin Wall as it was in the 1980s. The accompanying piece is a series of original 1989 photographs on loan from the German consulate depicting scenes of the days that the wall came down. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Department of Global Studies, the Valente Center for Arts and Sciences and the Dean of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with Northeastern University and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany for New England.

Please note that the “Virtual Wall” portion of the exhibit will be available Monday, November 17 through Thursday, November 20, 2014.  The photographs will remain on display through December 9, 2014.  For more information, please visit http://berlinwallexhibitionatbentleynov2014.wordpress.com.
