Pulp fiction talk, display at Lakeview Library

Rodney Schroeter, correspondent for The Sounder and editor of The Plymouth Review Current, will give a visual presentation on “Pulp Culture” at the Lakeview Community Library on June 19.

The “pulps” were fiction magazines common during the early half of the 20th Century, when people read for pleasure and entertainment. They covered every reading taste and category, and reflected the historical times in which they were published.

Schroeter’s talk is built upon two events at the Lakeview library. First is the library’s acquisition of a recent book, The Art of the Pulps, a large illustrated history of this form of literature. Second is a selection of pulp magazines from Schroeter’s collection, on display now until the end of May in the library’s entrance way display case.

Artwork used on pulp covers sometimes reached the level of fine art. The display case exhibit, and Schroeter’s presentation, presents dozens of examples.

The talk will be given on Tues., June 19 at 11 a.m., and again at 6 p.m. There will be door prizes for audience members.

The Lakeview Community Library is located at 112 Butler St, Random Lake. For more information, please call (920) 994-4825.
