Claremont Discourse lecture: "Do Books Still Speak?"

Please join us in the Honnold/Mudd Library Founders Room, Thursday, March 27 at 4:15PM for a Claremont Discourse Lecture, sponsored by the Claremont Colleges Library.

Do Books Still Speak? Artist's Books and Ideas
Judy Harvey Sahak, Director of the Ella Strong Denison Library and Kitty Maryatt, Director of the Scripps College Press


Launching the Claremont Colleges Library's annual altered book contest Re:book is this team presentation exploring the exciting and diverse world of artist's books. These aren't your grandmother's books: they act out, demand to be touched and manipulated, sometimes cause frustration and incite anger or provide, joyfulness, and surprise. Director of the Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College, Judy Harvey Sahak, will give an overview of the genre showing examples from the notable artist's books collection at Denison. Kitty Maryatt, Director of the Scripps College Press, will discuss the limited edition, handmade artist's books her students in the Typography and the Book Arts class create with care and purposefulness each semester.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.
