RBS Online: Books as Bridges

RBS Online: Books as Bridges

Tuesday, Jun 23, 2020 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

 

Tune for a conversation that builds on the kind of lively discussions that take place during RBS course weeks with Rebecca Romney (Type Punch Matrix), Krystal Appiah (Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library), Mark Dimunation (Library of Congress), and Selby Kiffer (Sotheby’s). These four well-known figures from our community will talk about rare books and artifacts with a wide variety of publics in various settings and across different media, including public television. The panel will focus on how rare books and artifacts serve as bridges connecting individuals, communities, and institutions with each other and with the past. Panelists will also reflect on the challenges of moving from in-person outreach to online venues for public engagement. The panel will be co-moderated by Laura Perrings and Ruth-Ellen St. Onge (Rare Book School).
