Talking Rare Books and Forgery

9780802123213 copy.jpgOn Thursday, November 5, authors Bradford Morrow and Nicholas Basbanes will treat New York City bibliophiles to a public conversation about rare book collecting. Morrow, a book collector and the acclaimed author of last year's literary thriller, The Forgers (which we reviewed positively last fall), will read from his novel set inside the world of rare books, just released in paperback by the Mysterious Press. Then Basbanes, Fine Books columnist and author, most recently, of On Paper, will join Morrow for a larger discussion about books, forgery, and the art of collecting. The two are sure to share some legendary tales of the trade.    

This event is hosted by Swann Auction Galleries, 104 East 25th Street, 6th Floor, in conjunction with a preview of the Lawrence M. Solomon collection of mystery, detective, and science fiction literature. The book talk begins at 6:00 (RSVP required).
