Yale to showcase Cleft Heart

I’m excited to announce that University will exhibit Cleft Heart: Chasing Normal in Sterling Memorial Library.

The will be featured in the Memorabilia Room of the library starting May 28, 2015. The exhibit will run through the summer into September.

The library is a fitting location for an exhibition since five chapters of the book deal with my life in Trumbull College, the residence hall that abuts Sterling. 

The exhibit represents a collaboration between the  Manuscripts, Archives, and Preservation departments at the Library and the Association of Yale Alumni (YAM). Frank Ward and Page Stockwell from the Class of 1965 assembled the exhibit, with the help of Jennifer Julier (YAM).

The library was designed by James Gamble Rogers as the centerpiece of Yale’s Gothic Revival campus. It is elaborately ornamented, featuring extensive sculpture and painting as well as hundreds of panes of stained glass created by G. Owen Bonawit. In addition to five large reading rooms, a Music Library, and courtyard on the ground floor, the library’s tower has sixteen levels of bookstacks containing over 4 million volumes.
