Collectors Book Salon with Gary Mackelprang
Calling all bibliophiles!
Weller Book Works Collectors Book Salons feature libations and treats, social time for conversation and a special deal on rare books that is only available to guests. Books are bridges across the divides of time and space and like they embrace the diversity of the human experience, we try to keep our treats, speakers and deals diverse which is maybe another word for unpredictable.
Glasses filled at 6:30 and we muster for the Collectors’ Chat at 7:15 in our Rare Book Room. The event has no digital component.
September's Collectors' Chat will be from effervescent raconteur and CBS habitué Gary Mackelprang. Gary's topic will be, "Iain McGilcrhrist's The Matter with Things: Our brains, our delusions, and the unmaking of the world along with associated texts. In discussing the book, we'll be exploring the ideas of Plato, Kant, Nietzsche, Einstein, Darwin, Goethe, Schroedinger, Heisenberg, Feynman, Whitehead, Jung, Bohr, James, and many others. Primarily a neuroscientific discussion, it will likely stray into quantum field theory, history, psychology and (maybe) even metaphysics."
