Collectors' Book Salon: Your First TreasureSubmitted by Lane on Tue, 01/08/2019 - 3:49pm
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, January 25, we initiate the season with a book collectors' sharing Salon. This year, we are asking you to show us the first rare or collectible book acquired by you for yourself, and tell us about it. We'll take turns showing the first expensive or precious books we deliberately chose and bought. We'll examine seminal events in each of our progressions from dull mortals to bibliophiles. Bring your friends!
