Event description
Lithuanian-American poet Rasa Stefanija Miliauskas presents her multi-art book "Rytmečio Rasa / Morning Dew"

About this event

On Sunday, Oct. 24th, the Balzekas Museum welcomes poet Rasa Stefanija Miliauskas, author of "Rytmečio Rasa / Morning Dew", a new multi-art book featuring Miliauskas' poems as well as photographs and illustrations by the author's sister, Dalia, and their father.

The book is dedicated to Rasa's parents, who fled Lithuania during WWII. The book is published in English and Lithuanian. Although mainly in English, the presentation will include poetry readings in Lithuanian. (Book signing after the presentation)

Admission: Suggested donation ~ $8 | Seniors ~ $5 | Museum Members and Students ~ FREE! Museum Memberships may be purchased upon check out. Although tickets will be available at the door, the Museum requests that attendees preregister for the event and consider donating toward installing live-streaming capabilities in the Museum's ballroom. That way all Museum programs can be broadcast and viewed online.

If possible, the presentation will be recorded and subsequently available to view on the Museum's Vimeo Chanel by anyone who registered for the event but could not attend in person. Should live-streaming become available by the event date, all registered ticket holders will be notified and will receive a private link to the live-stream broadcast.

This program is partially supported by the members and private donors of the Balzekas Museum and grants from the following grantors: Illinois Arts Council; Illinois Humanities; and a CityArts grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

This Museum presentation was supported in part by a grant of U.S. Department of Treasury funds through the City of Chicago. The opinions, findings, conclusions and recommendations expressed in this program are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Department of Treasury or the City of Chicago or the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture and its Members.
