Special Exhibit: The Global Book

Talks/Lectures

How do physical attributes in books reveal cross-cultural influences? Have the same creative impulses emerged in places hundreds of years and thousands of miles apart? Can juxtaposing one book with another tell us something about each that we cannot get by looking at just one? A new exhibition hosted by Western Libraries Heritage Resources raises these questions and invites viewers to consider books as one point of departure for exploring our shared global heritage. Among the materials on display are examples of manuscript illumination from medieval Europe and the Middle East; a selection of illustrated bindings produced in Japan, Europe, and the United States; a Quranic writing board; a Roman wax tablet; two Buddhist sutras; an original palm leaf manuscript; and several highlights from Western Librariesí prominent Mongolian Studies collection.

Heritage Resources Distinguished Speakers Chuck and Dee Robinson to present "It Takes a Village Books: Building Community One Book at a Time"

Talks/Lectures, Community Event, Business

Since it opened in 1980, Village Books has grown from a small "mom and pop" store to a two-location enterprise employing fifty people. The store's founders, Chuck and Dee Robinson, will speak about their experiences running a successful, locally-owned bookstore for nearly four decades, during a time of rapid change in the book industry. They will also discuss their decision to leave the historical records of that business to the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.
