In celebration of the current exhibition at the Haas Family Arts Library and in collaboration with the "Odds and Ends Art Book Fair" at the Yale University Art Gallery, designer/author Warren Lehrer (MFA ’80) will present a multimedia performance/reading of his award-winning illuminated novel, "A Life In Books: The Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley". In the funny and thought provoking performance, Lehrer presents an overview of his author-protagonist's life in books via many of Mobley's cover designs and other biographical materials including animations and video performances of book excerpts. The performance will take place in the Yale University Art Gallery lecture hall.

Please join us for a pre-performance reception at the Robert B Haas Family Library from 4:30-6:00pm where visitors can view Lehrer’s work in the exhibition. Enter via The Loria Center, 190 York Street. (Directly across York Street from the Yale University Art Gallery lecture hall entrance.)
