The EFW Library presents Professor William Miller, Dept. of Entomology, the latest in the series of READ Posters featuring department faculty and staff.


The St. Paul Libraries Poster Project is based on a series begun by the American Library Association in 1985 to promote reading. Some of the world's best-known faces have lent their support to the simple but powerful message: READ! You may have seen these posters in other libraries, featuring such celebrities as Johnny Depp, Stephen Hawking, and Yo-Yo Ma.
