Seminary Co-op talk

The Hyde Park Historical Society is hosting a presentation on the stories and people that made the former home of the Seminary Co-op such a distinctive place.

University of Chicago alumni Jasmine Kwong and Megan E. Doherty will give a first look at “The Seminary Co-op Documentary Project: Capturing the Bookstore’s Distinctive Character and History” at 2 p.m. on Sat., March 16 at 5529 S. Lake Park Ave.

Kwong and Doherty catalogued stories and photos from Co-op patrons in the months prior to its move last fall. They collected stories and photographs about the community’s interaction with the basement the Co-op grew into before it moved to its current location at 5751 S. Woodlawn Ave.
