WashU Libraries Virtual Book Club: 'People of the Book'

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join us to discuss our April virtual book club selection, "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks.

When asked to conserve the priceless and famed Sarajevo Haggadah, Hannah Heath jumps at the chance to work with the beautiful Jewish text. She unlocks the books mysteries and past through her conservation work, learning about the extraordinary illuminations, the Catholic priest who saved it from burning, and the man who risked his life to save the book from the Bosnian war.

Special guest Danielle Creech, head of preservation, digitization and exhibitions, will give a brief presentation on conservation and preservation at WashU and lead discussion of the novel.

Free and open to all. Preregistration required.
