Collectors' Book Salon

Book-lovers and collectors meet at Weller Book Works Collectors' Book Salons on the last Friday of each month, January through October. Serious and frivolous bibliophiles meet in our Rare Book Department for friendship conversation, edification and bibliolust. We start at 6:30 pm and at 7:15, an invited bibliophile leads the Collectors' Chat about a topic of her or his particular knowledge and passion. And at each salon there is also a special deal on rare books.

On Friday, February 22, Tony Weller and Joan Nay will offer a variety show of sorts, Tales from the Rare Book trade. In 2009 Joan and Tony performed an unusual rare book presentation for members of the Utah Library Association. They took turns briskly telling very short stories, gossip, tales of pursuit, outrageous serendipities, and other bookish amusements from their decades of experience with a dramatic soundtrack. At the Collector’s Book Salon on February 22nd, they will perform this again with a new slate of tales and one more decade’s time. Bring your friends!
