Virtual Book Club: 'The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections'

Wednesday, December 6 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Virtual Event

Join us for the December WashU Libraries virtual book club to discuss The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections by Eva Jurczyk.

Liesl Weiss long ago learned to be content working behind the scenes in the distinguished rare books department of a large university, managing details to make the head of the department look good. But when her boss has a stroke and she’s left to run things, she discovers that the library’s most prized manuscript is missing. 

Book club will begin with a short presentation on real life special collections departments, followed by a discussion of the book.

Free and open to all, registration required for Zoom link.
