Evanston, IL 60201

One Book One Northwestern (OBON) is a university‐wide reading program that aims to engage the campus in a common conversation centered on a carefully chosen, thought-provoking book. The Block is proud to partner annually with One Book to explore the themes of this shared text, selecting artworks from the museum collection that can broaden discussions.

Join Block Museum staff for a talk considering an artwork from the Block’s collection that reflects on the complexities of love, family, identity, and grief—themes central to the 2023–24 One Book One Northwestern selection, Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner.

This talk will be led by Isabella Ko, Engagement Coordinator, who will be taking a close look at Roland L. Freeman's photograph Combing Hair, Amoke Alayoe and Her Children, Silver Spring, Maryland, June 1978
