In 2017, we honored Bethlehem’s most renowned literary citizen, the great early 20th century poet Hilda “H.D.” Doolittle, by having the site of her childhood home recognized as a Literary Landmark. Her childhood home just happens to be the same piece of land where the Bethlehem Area Public Library now stands.
And we’re not done with the H.D-honoring!
H.D. deserves a portrait, hung in the library, and we need your help. Help us raise $3,500 to commission this one-of-a-kind work of art honoring this ground-breaking poet. The portrait will be hung proudly in the Main Library of the Bethlehem Area Public Library for all to enjoy.
