The Library Foundation presents "Refugee Is Not My Name" as part of the Mayor's Book Club at the Central Library Gallery, a traveling art exhibition highlighting photographic portraits, film, and stories of refugees from around the world who have resettled in Austin. This exhibition meets Austin residents where they are - in public and iconic spaces throughout the city - and invites them to come and learn the names, see the faces, and get to know some of their refugee neighbors as the unique individuals they are. At each exhibiting location, new portraits and stories will be added. Film by Aaron Weiss, One Story Productions; Writing by Jess Archer; Photography by Ashley St. Clair.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 5.
