Bodmer, Fort Union of the Missouri

Mark your calendar for the fourth annual Book Collector’s Evening

March 25, 2014
6:00 PM
Alta Club 100 East South Temple

Join the University of Utah’s Friends of the J. Willard Marriott Library for an eventful evening including a display of rare books, a silent auction, and a presentation by well-known speaker, bibliophile and writer, Nicolas Basbanes. In his presentation,  “Fruits of a Gentle Madness,” Basbanes will use anecdotal, specific, up-to-the-minute examples to illustrate how great libraries and important research collections have relied on, over decades and to this day, the passion and eccentricities of the private collector.

The evening will provide an opportunity to share your book collecting adventures and favorite books with fellow aficionados.
