Location: Shorewood Village Center
In Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven, Kirsten Raymonde has several tattoos that carry special meaning. Tattoos continue to grow in popularity, but how did something that was once taboo become mainstream? Amelia Klem Osterud will talk about the history of tattoos, from ancient times to modern designs, as well as the daring tattooed performers that were the focus of her 2014 book, The Tattooed Lady: A History.
Amelia Klem Osterud is a tattooed librarian in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who writes and speaks on circus, sideshow and tattoo history. She holds master’s degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in History and Library Science.
THIS EVENT IS PART OF OUR SHOREWOOD READS 2018 PROGRAMMING.
