October Daytime Program

Recipe for a diverting autumn hour. Take one energetic professor in the University of Illinois School of Information Sciences whose research interests include manuscript studies and book history. Liberally sprinkle in resources from a library that includes some 14 million items. Gently fold in her work examining the page as a dynamic interface in scrolls, tablets, and codices from the Middle Ages on. Serve fresh with a generous side of illustrations. That is what will be served up for our October daytime event, as Dr. Bonnie Mak joins us to open a cabinet of diverting curiosities. As the date draws nearer and the cabinet swings open, watch your email for even more hints about the wonders that await inside!

The presentation is free, but advance registration by 10/07/20 is required for delivery of the Zoom instructions.

All Daytime Programs will begin at 12:30 PM CT via Zoom. The events will consist of quality Zoom presentations with real-time Q&A features immediately following those presentations.
