Call for entries! Sep 1–30, The City Library is accepting proposals for our TEDxMarmaladeLibrary series. We're looking for 10–15 minute Ted Talks based on the concepts of original ideas, challenges, passions, experiences, and inspirations. Apply at slcpl.org/tedx. . Suggested themes include "Love in the Digital Age", "The Big Reveal", or "Positive Disruption." Try to define one of these themes in your own terms, or feel free to come up with your own theme. Think of your idea, and how it has unleashed change and transformation to meet unmet needs. Think about how you make sense of change — what it means, how it affects policies and systems, and how it creates a better society. Try exploring new innovations and methods of understanding the human condition, the conscious and unconscious mind, or how to empower the marginalized, or simply improving yourself.

"I have been photographing Japanese American Nisei veterans for the past eighteen years. I started this project because I wanted to photograph veterans in an artistic way and share the stories that needed to be remembered for the next generation. The Nisei almost universally never talked about their war experiences, so I felt it was necessary to share what they could not..." - Shane Sato. .
