Go on a Blind Date With Books in Special Collections

The Quiver of Love

The Quiver of Love

Are you in love with books? Come to the Special Collections Research Center’s  “Blind Date With Books” event on February 13, from 4:00-6:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Learn about how early books were made, and try your hand at folding a folio to make a copy of the first Shakespeare folio.  Engage in the ultimate blind date with a book, trying to identify books while blindfolded.  And be sure to take a look at the rare books and manuscripts on display, all focusing on elements of love, romance, and heartbreak, from medieval through contemporary times.

The Special Collections Research Center is located on the first floor of Regenstein Library.  Anyone needing an accommodation to attend this event should contact Julia Gardner 773-834-0627.
