Fall Workshop with Andrew Piper: Friday, September 23

Friday, September 23rd at 1:00pm, the Public Libraries Section of the Vermont Library Association is planning a fall workshop at the Art Gallery Meeting Space at Main Street Landing in Burlington.

Andrew Piper from McGill University will be our guest speaker He has done all sorts of interesting work in the digital humanities, and will be speaking about his 2012 work Book Was There: Reading in Electronic Times. The work is a meditation on where reading has been and where it might be going in the digital future.

This workshop is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. If you plan on attending, please send a quick email to Christine Porter at christine@windsorlibrary.org so we have an approximate head count. Look forward to seeing you there!

Main Street Landing is at 60 Lake St, Burlington, VT. The best way to get to “The Gallery” where the talk will be held is to enter the building from Lake Street by the Merrill Lynch office and take the elevator to the 2nd floor. The elevator opens into the hallway that leads to the Gallery.
