The Texts of Private Press Books - Should They Come from the Past or the Present?
Friday, September 30, 2016 1 pm-4:15 pm
To kick things off on Friday, we will have an educational symposium, free of charge and open to librarians, private press printers, and any other interested parties. Led by panelists from a variety of backgrounds, the symposium will be part presentation and part discussion.
This year's theme is "The Texts of Private Press Books - Should it Come from the Past or the Present?," and will focus on the study of how and why a Press chooses a Text.
Speakers will include Mark Dimunation of the Rare Book & Special Collections of the Library of Congress, Ron Patkus, head of Special Collections at Vassar, and a speech by Abigail Rorer of The Lone Oak Press.
Update 8/22/2016 - seats for the symposium are no longer available. All inquiring atendees after this point will be added to a waiting list.
