Gene Kannenberg Jr. (left) and Karen Kring present funds to Florence Mugambi, Project Director of the Ontulili Literacy Project, toward building a library in Ms. Mugambi’s home village in Kenya. The event took place at Creative Coworking, 922 Davis St.

The funds were donations raised during Mr. Kannenberg’s “Qodèxx Happening,” an exhibition of abstract comic art and music, at the coworking space.

Ms. Kring served as host and organizer for the event.

Mr. Kannenberg and Ms. Mugambi are both librarians at the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies at Northwestern University and live in Evanston.
