NOBS Forum: Thursday, February 16th, 7 pm at Oberlin College
Ed Vermue: Tour of the Letterpress Studio and showing of: Proceed and Be Bold!, a Film on Amos Kennedy Jr.
At this month’s forum, Special Collections librarian Ed Vermue conducts a tour of the Letterpress Studio at Oberlin College, followed by a screening of the film Proceed and Be Bold! At 40 years of age, Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Unsatisfied with his comfortable, middle-class life, Amos traded in his computer for a printing press and his white collar for a pair of overalls. Armed with life, liberty, peanuts, and a meager yearly income of $7,000, Amos cranked out a new, mutinous declaration of independence.
Please note this month’s forum will not be held at Loganberry Books. Instead, we will meet in the lobby of the Mudd Library at Oberlin College, 148 West College Street, Oberlin, Ohio.
