Pandemic: Resiliency and Rebuilding
All-day event
Perry-Castañeda Library

We are now nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic. As variants emerge, vaccines get distributed, and scientists discover new findings about the virus, what can we learn from previous pandemics and their aftermath? What can we discover about our resilience from fictional accounts of disease? The books and resources in this display shed light on how past pandemics shaped culture, medicine, politics, and history, as well as highlight fictional accounts (both realistic and speculative) that give insight into how we recover and move forward from such an earth-shattering year.
