Keynote speaker Maureen E. Mulvihill of the Princeton Research Forum will present "What Do You See? Frontispieces of Margaret Cavendish -- Invention, Authority, Book Arts" with digital images, a table display of rare books from her personal collection, and a distributed bibliography. Mulvihill will examine these integral pieces of book design and discuss how to "read" them in the context of seventeenth-century book arts and reading habits. Mulvihill has written widely on  rare books, women writers, and the intersection of literature and visual arts. This lecture occurs  at the Creekside Lodge in the Sundance Resort on July 13 at 5:30 p.m. Read more about this program here.
