How many varieties of cherry blossoms can you find in your neighborhood? How do you describe their colors? Mari Nakahara, co-author of the book Cherry Blossom: Sakura Collections from the Library of Congress, will offer a close-up exploration of exquisite watercolor illustrations of the 1912 gift of cherry blossom trees from the city of Tokyo to Washington, D.C. to increase your visual recognition of cherry blossoms each spring. The event will be recorded.
Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.
