Beautiful, but Labyrinthine: The Care and Storage of Fictional Books

  • July 30, 2020 • 3 PM – 4 PM
  • Zoom

What do curators do when they can’t be in the library? After organizing her own books for the fourth time, Curator of Rare Books Cassie Brand dreams of well-organized stacks and reads novels about libraries. Join Cassie as she explores fictional libraries created by labyrinths, including libraries found in The Name of the Rose, The City of Dreaming Books, and Shadow of the Wind, and discovers what these fictional depictions tell us about our own libraries.
