HH Bennett Program

Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 29th at 7PM, author Sara Rath will be at the library for a presentation on Henry Hamilton Bennett. He was the photographer who made Wisconsin Dells famous. Rath will share the work and life-story of Bennett who is best known for exploring the canyons and craggy cliffs of Wisconsin Dells after the Civil War with camera in hand. But his legacy goes far beyond his photographs. Although he faced dire personal challenges, his accomplishments, both technical and artistic, granted Bennett a lasting legacy and a solid reputation in the history of photography. The Friends of the Library sponsor this free event.
