Live! at the Library: Women in Photograph­y


The Library of Congress’s free weekly after-hours gathering has a pair of evenings dedicated to Women’s History Month. This Thursday features photojourn­alist Sharon Farmer, the first woman and first African American to be director of the White House Photograph­y Office, and Anne Tucker, curator emerita at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, discussing the history of female photograph­ers in conjunctio­n with the library’s ongoing “Not an Ostrich” exhibit, which draws from the library’s vast collection of more than 14 million photograph­s to highlight a selection of 400 images. Free timed entry tickets are required. Reservatio­ns are also open for Live! at the Library on March 30, when veterans of Olivia Records, a woman-run record label founded in D.C. in the 1970s, will talk about their experience­s with historian Bonnie Morris.

When: Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Where: Library of Congress, 10 First St. SE.

Tickets: Free; advance registrati­on required.
