Book Studies Capstone Presentation at Collaborations

The four graduating seniors from the Book Studies Concentration will give a presentation on their joint capstone project: the creation of an exhibition of rare books in the Mortimer Rare Book Room, and its on-line version. Come and support fellow BKXers!
The 2013 Book Studies WAYZGOOSE
Saturday, April 20, 2013, after Collaborations
At the Acorn in Neilson Library
"Wayzgoose" is the ancient name for a merry printers' party. We'll honor the very first class of BKX graduating seniors, print a broadside on the old acorn press, and relax with some good food one last time before the end-of-term crunch.
