Throughout January and February, the Menlo Park Library is hosting a photo exhibit showcasing the photography of students from East Palo Alto who participated in Almanac reporter Kate Bradshaw's "Uneven Ground" reporting series, which was published in The Almanac in September.
The exhibit features 20 photographs taken by girls ages 11 to 13 enrolled in a summer program by Girls to Women, an East Palo Alto-based nonprofit aimed at empowering young women. The students took photographs in response to a prompt asking the following questions: What is healthy in your community? What is unhealthy?
Photos were taken with disposable cameras provided to the students.
The library, located at 800 Alma St. in Menlo Park, is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesdays noon to 6 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
Bradshaw is also scheduled to speak about the series at the library on Monday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m.
