All About the Book

Explore the book not simply as a container of content, but a “meaningful physical object that has shaped the way we understand the world around us.”

Starting Wednesday, NOV 8, this 4-part series focuses one of our favorite topics—books!—with insight and expertise from KU faculty and staff.

Adults and Teens welcome! Free, but registration is required for the Kenneth Spencer Research Library Special Collections Tour. Questions? Email Jessi: jharris@lplks.org.
