Take a visual journey and explore the variety and wonder of the book. If you think books are only made of paper, you're in for a surprise. You’ll see books from around the world made from palm leaves, wood, silk, and vellum that are rolled, folded, and strung as well as sewn followed by some of the amazing work contemporary artists are creating with the book form. Before and after the talk, you’ll have a chance to view in person books from Susan’s collection. Susan has been involved with the book for over 30 years as an artist, writer, illustrator, designer, and reader and loves sharing her passion. Please register online for this program.

This program starts at 6:30, but please come early at 6:15pm for viewing and handling time with various books from Susan's collection!
