Rare Book Week Events
Well, it's officially Rare Book Week in New York! As we've done for the past few years now, we've put together a handy guide to the book fairs, auctions, exhibitions, and other eating/drinking/browsing opportunities available to those who make the annual biblio-pilgrimage. It's all here.
But that's not all. There are two more events worth putting on your literary itinerary.
On Thursday, March 8, at 2:30-3:30 pm, just prior to the NYABF's preview night, antiquarian bookseller Justin Croft will be delivering the 2018 Grolier Club Rare Book Week lecture: "Published without Publicity," a personal view of the privately produced manuscript book.
And on Sunday, March 11, at 10:00 a.m., the ABAA Women's Initiative will host Collections and Women: A Panel Discussion at the Park Avenue Armory. Panelists Elizabeth Denlinger (curator, NYPL), Sarah Gordon (postdoctoral fellow in women's history, New-York Historical Society), and Molly Schwartzburg (curator, UVA) will address some of the many facets of women and collecting, in a wide-ranging discussion moderated by antiquarian bookseller Nina Musinsky.
