4 books, 3 librarians – J.C.Beaglehole Room, Tuesday 19 May 2015, 12-1pm

Kia ora koutou

In the latest of our lunchtime seminar series, as promised at the March seminar, the J.C.Beaglehole Room staff will take a turn to present items from the collection which have captured their interest.

  • Chrissy Tetley will talk about Expurgated, a work of book art by Christine Kermaire. She will interpret the art work in the spirit in which it was made.
  • Maia-Jeanne McAllister will draw a comparison between two pamphlets about space travel – J.M.T.’s 1901 Trip to Mars and George Smith’s The Way Out from the 1930s.
  • Sue Hirst will talk about the 1634 diary of Sarah Savage, its overseas connections and how it came to be in our collection.

Tuesday 19th of May 12-1 in the J.C.Beaglehole Room, Level 4 of the Library at Kelburn. I hope you will be able to join us.
