Fifer courtroom from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Jack Walsdorf will discuss Bloomington native Elbert Hubbard’s connection to William Morris, an English textile designer, poet, novelist, translator, and socialist activist.

Attendees are invited to bring one or two books for an “ Antiques Road Show” style appraisal, with assessment of the objects narrated by Walsdorf.
