Under Cover: An Evening with Intriguing Bindings and Enclosures

The cover of a 19th century book. The cover is very detailed with silver designs. In the middle is an oval, within the oval is a vase with vines coming out of it. Surrounding the oval is a larger oval full of entwined vines. Outside that, from the outer oval to the edges of the cover, are designs of leaves and bunches of berries. To the left of the cover are three clips. At the top and bottom of each vertical edge, in the middle, is a flower — it looks a little like a sunflower with a large middle & petals.

Join us for an open house exploring interesting bindings and enclosures on a selection of manuscripts, printed books, and artists’ books in terms of what they disguise and what they reveal. Our first introduction to a book often comes via its cover or enclosure. While many covers plainly identify and entice us to peruse their contents, others obscure what they protect and may even leave us wondering if what we’re looking at is in fact a book. Other covers are so captivating as to overshadow what they enclose, leaving us reluctant to venture past them for a look inside.

Strengths of Refugees and their Community: Exhibit Opening

Join us for a panel discussion and refreshments for the opening of the Strengths of Refugees and their Community exhibit. Refugees have been at the forefront of political discussion in the United States as the Syrian crisis escalates and xenophobia heightens. Much has been said regarding these refugees, but all too often the voices of refugees themselves are left out of the conversation.
