Celebrate women, literature and art with the Young Women's Resource Center and DSM Girl Gang

Be the first to explore Louise Noun's personal book collection of female authors, women's history and art as we officially open the library for public use. In the halls of the YWRC, view one-of-a-kind visual and written works by more than 40 local female artists. Each artist or writer has chosen a book from Louise's collection to serve as the inspiration for their piece. 

This event is generously sponsored by Ellen and Jim Hubbell.
