Wellesley Curator of Special Collections Speaking at the Northampton Book Fair
Ruth R. Rogers will be speaking on Friday, December 2 from 4-5 at the Nielson Library, Browsing Room as part of the Northampton Book Fair. Ruth is the Curator of Special Collections at the Wellesley College Library where she develops the collection and lectures on the evolution of the book as material culture, visual communication, and artistic form. More information is attached. The Northampton Book Fair runs all weekend and looks fabulous with lots of writers talks - including children's book authors at 10 am Saturday with authors such as Mordicai Gerstein (The Sleeping Gypsy and I Am Peter Pan), Richard Michelson (Fascinating: The Life of Leonard Nimoy), Leslea Newman (Ketzel, the Cat Who Composed), Heidi Stemple (You Nest Here With Me, written with Jane Yolen) and Jane Yolen (On Bird Hill, illustrated by Bob Marstall) in attendance. It is also a great place to do some holiday shopping! I hope some of you can make it!
