Events Upcoming

There are a few neat things going on in the book world over the next few days that I thought I'd better pass along:

- On Thursday, 17 May, the Boston Athenaeum sponsors "Libraries and the Organization of Knowledge: Searching the Past, Seeking the Future" as part of its bicentennial lecture series. Terry Belanger, founder and director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, will speak, along with former ALA president Michael Gorman. The talk will be at 6 p.m. in the Rabb Lecture Hall at the Boston Public Library.

- On Tuesday, 22 May, the American Printing History Association is screening "Letterpress Unbound," a film about letterpress masters printers Ruth Lingen and Peter Kruty. Producers Champe Smith and Sally Gardner will be at the screening, as will the featured printers. This event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Grolier Club, 47 East 60th Street in NYC.

Feel free to add anything I've missed!
