Aug 29 Webinar: Books Go to War: Armed Services Editions in World War II

Please join us for our August topical webinar:

Books Go to War: Armed Services Editions in World War II

When the United States entered World War II in 1941, it opposed nations that had banned and burned books. In 1943, the Council on Books in Wartime, working with the War Department, began distributing pocket-size paperback volumes to soldiers in every theater of war. By 1947, approximately 123 million copies of some 1,300 titles in every genre had been printed and distributed as Armed Services Editions. The program rescued from obscurity such now-classic books as F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (1925), while Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1943) became a national favorite.

These books laid the groundwork for broad popularity of mass market paperbacks in post-WWII America. Today, they are loved by collectors, and the Library of Congress’s Rare Book and Special Collections Division holds the only complete set. Join Abby Yochelson, English and American Literature reference specialist in the Library’s Humanities and Social Sciences Division, to learn more about this fascinating collection.

Date: Tuesday, August 29
Time: 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm EDT

May 24 Webinar: A Nation of Immigrants: Researching Jewish Americans at loc.gov

Please join us for our May topical webinar:

A Nation of Immigrants: Researching Jewish Americans at loc.gov

Called "a nation of immigrants" by John F. Kennedy in his 1959 book of that title, the United States has been home to millions of Jews from around the globe who came to its shores seeking freedom and opportunity. Since the first arrival of thirteen Iberian Jews to New Amsterdam in 1654, Jewish immigrants and their descendants have established a richly diverse Jewish American cultural and historical legacy—one that bridges not only race, class, gender, and geography, but a broad array of occupational, political, social, and religious roles. Building on the motif of Jewish Americans finding and making their collective home, this webinar explores the wealth of primary sources on the Library of Congress website related to Jewish Americans and their heritage as immigrants. Please join research specialist Susan Garfinkel for an overview and online tour of these resources, in conjunction with Jewish American Heritage Month.

Date: Wednesday, May 24
Time: 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm EDT
Registration: Please use the registration form.
