November 3, 4PM, SPECIAL COLLECTIONS SHOWCASE Main Point Music, Middle Earth Books

An up-close, curator’s view of the outstanding collections recently acquired by Temple from two of Philadelphia’s most important historical arts organizations: Main Point music venue in Bryn Mawr and the former Middle Earth Bookstore in Center City. These venues brought the talents of Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith and Charles Bukowski, among others, to Philadelphia’s thriving 1960s and 70s Bohemian scene. See a signed manuscript of Smith poems and more at this November event, and visit our companion exhibition (more information on back panel). main point adSMALL.jpg Ad for a show at Main Point Music in Bryn Mawr, held in Temple Libraries’ Special Collections Department middle earth Patti Smith reading 001SMALL.jpg Punk legend Patti Smith gives a reading at Middle Earth Books, photo held in Temple Libraries’ Special Collections Department
