[BKARTS] Guild of Book Workers 100th Anniversary exhibit/events Dartmouth College, Hanover NH

Subject: Guild of Book Workers 100th Anniversary exhibit/events

>From Barbara Adams Hebard, the NE Chapter Exhibition Coordinator:

Save the dates: September 21, 2007 through November 30, 2007. The GBW 100th Anniversary Exhibition will be shown at its New England venue, Dartmouth College. The fabulous Baker-Berry Library is hosting this historic exhibition. We have some great events connected with the exhibition. Because of the enthusiastic support of Dartmouth, the 100th Anniversary Exhibition will have an extended stay in New England, opening September 24 and continuing through November 30, 2007.

Exhibition related events include; Collectors and Collecting sponsored by The Friends of Dartmouth College Library on September 27; the opening reception for the GBW 100th anniversary exhibition on September 27; and on October 27 there will be presentations featuring some key New England members of the Guild of Book Workers. All of these events are free and open to the public.

Collectors and Collecting is an afternoon event, and will include tables for selected collectors to show off prized books. GBW members and the public are invited to meet the Dartmouth book collectors, attend the 3:00 pm talk, "Collector's Showcase: Highlights from Some of Our Friends", and hear the 4:00 pm lecture, "Collectors and Collecting" offered by Joy Kenseth, Professor of Art History at Dartmouth College. After the lecture, you may participant in the opening reception of the 100th Anniversary Exhibition, beginning at 5:00 pm. Jeffrey Horrell, Dean of Libraries and Librarian of the College, and James Reid-Cunningham, President of the Guild of Book Workers, will make brief remarks at the reception.

Also plan to come to the event on October 27, at 1:30 pm. There will be presentations by Daniel Kelm, Peter Geraty, Nancy Leavitt and James Reid-Cunningham. Kelm, Geraty, and Leavitt will talk about their books and careers. Reid-Cunningham, President of GBW, will give an account of the 100 year history of the Guild of Book Workers. This event is a fitting accompaniment to the 100th Anniversary Exhibition. If you have not yet seen this extraordinary exhibition, come to see it at its last venue; the Baker-Berry Library on the beautiful campus of the prestigious Dartmouth College.
