Attention Book Lovers!
We are grateful to Jean M. Larsen, wife of the late A. Dean Larsen, for establishing the A. Dean Larsen Book Collecting Conference endowment. Through her generosity, registration for the conference has been reduced to $35.00.
About the conference
The A. Dean Larsen Book Collecting Conference will be on Thursday and Friday, March 27 and 28, 2008.
Each year the L. Tom Perry Special Collections at BYU opens it door to book collectors and book lovers of all stripes and interests. We encourage book dealers, librarians, and book lovers to attend this conference. We sincerely want to "open the vaults" to all who come so they may learn from qualified curators, handle the rarest of materials and thus experience a very real connection to the past.
The conference theme for this year highlights the A. Dean and Jean M. Larsen Yellowstone Collection. Appropriately, our keynote speaker is Susan Rugh, Associate Professor of History at BYU, who will speak on her research concerning "Vacationing in Yellowstone." Professor Rugh's address will be delivered during the luncheon (included as part of the registration fee).
Just click on the menu at the top of this screen to read further information about each seminar as well as the Pre-Conference offerings.
Anyone with an interest in book collecting, printing history, Mormon and Western History, European History, or book arts and book conservation will enjoy this conference. We promise that we will not even mention the word "digital" during this time we are together to learn about and celebrate the BOOK. We invite all to attend.
