Nashville Public Library • September 5 to November 9

Before she became famous as a writer, Eudora Welty was an accomplished photographer. Working as a junior public relations officer for the Works Progress Administration (WPA), Welty interviewed people of all social and economic classes throughout her home state of Mississippi. In her spare time she photographed these people, capturing daily life and the effects of the Great Depression. Later, she would use what she saw and experienced in her short stories.

A collection of Eudora Welty’s photographs from the 1930s and 40s will be on display at the main branch of Nashville Public Library beginning September 5. Some of the photographs included were printed by Welty herself.

The exhibit is free and remains on view through November 2. For more information, please visit
