    The Legacy Wall is a 24' long x 8 tall' x 6' deep ... nearly 400 square-feet of biographical content of LGBT persons throughout history in a 360-degree doubled-sided island, bathed in LED lighting from above and below. In addition to their compelling biographies, each element is linked to a digital information portal -- accessible through user smartphones -- making video and education resources available on demand for all visitors and providing fuller  context to the names and important contributions these individuals made. The Legacy Wall celebrates the LGBT pantheon during this critical time when hard-fought gains are being threatened with reversal.

    Legacy WallThe Friends of the Palm Springs Library are excited that the Legacy Wall has come to Palm Springs and will be at the Palm Springs Public Library Nov. 12 – 23, 2019. During the time the exhibit will be at the Library, students from across the Coachella Valley will be visiting and participating in education activities at the Library. In celebration of this fantastic event, you and a guest are invited to attend a reception to meet the Executive Director of the Legacy Project, Victor Salvo, and to see the Legacy Wall in the Library. We also want to take this opportunity for you to meet the Board members for both the Friends of the Palm Springs Library and the Library Foundation.  Light refreshments will be served.

    The Legacy Wall features LGBTQ people throughout history, who have contributed in over 20 distinct fields, from every walk of life, from over 30 countries, spanning 4,000 years. The content is international and multicultural, and has been substantially vetted and sourced. This wonderfully positive and inspiring exhibit tells the stories behind such figures as Social Justice pioneer Jane Addams; Civil Rights organizer Bayard Rustin; British mathematician Alan Turing; U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan; Astronaut Sally Ride; Renaissance artist and inventor Leonardo DaVinci; Transgender icons Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson; Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo; and Fr. Mychal Judge (the “Saint of 9/11”) – with over 125 digitally interactive “mini-biographies” in all.

    Bob Woodward gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal in 1973. Since then, Watergate’s theme of secret government has driven Woodward’s tough but fair and non-partisan reporting. He pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of Washington; revealing in meticulous detail what’s really going on in the halls of power. Have the lessons of Watergate been forgotten? Is the media doing its job? Woodward offers an historical perspective as only he can. Woodward has written about the last nine U.S. presidents and chronicled how the power of the presidency has evolved. He is author of 19 bestselling books – 13 were #1 – more than any contemporary nonfiction writer. His latest bestseller, Fear: Trump in the White House, is the deepest dive ever made into the first months of any America president. Currently associate editor for The Washington Post where he’s worked since 1971, Bob Woodward has won nearly every American journalism award including two Pulitzers.

    Tickets include a copy of his book, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”  Book signing following event.
