Hey Buddy, We’re the Curators

November 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join co-curators Jen Knights and Brad Ferrier for an inside look at the inspiration behind the Hey Buddy, I’m Bill exhibit and their process for creating it during this free virtual event with the University of Iowa Libraries.

Learn how the Fall 2023 Main Library Gallery exhibit came to be and hear about the amazing life of Bill Sackter. Find out how he ended up in Iowa City, how he became known throughout the country, and how his story, in many ways, embodied the experience of people with disabilities in America.

Discover more about the curators’ favorite items from the exhibit and why each curator feels a personal connection to Bill’s story.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A and an invitation to share your own story.

Please register in advance to receive the Zoom webinar link.


Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Sara in advance at 319-467-1805 or sara-pinkham@uiowa.edu.
