January Dinner

Audrey Niffenegger, Caxtonian, book artist, printer, author, professor, collector, and indefatigable founder of book arts centers will present her plans for a new book arts center. The Artists Book House will create a space for work and collaboration for a broad base of book artists, printers and binders, similar to centers already existing in cities such as New York and Minneapolis. She will regale us with her efforts to beguile a city into letting her transform an empty mansion into a lively home for writers, readers, and book lovers.
