July Bar Bound

The next Bar Bound has been scheduled for July 13th in Portland Maine starting at 3:00 pm at:
White Cap Grill
164 Middle Street, 
Old Port
Portland, Maine 04101

The website for the White Cap Grille and directions can be found on their website: http://www.whitecapgrille.com

Bar Bound is an opportunity to get together with fellow book workers/friends, have a drink, maybe grab some food, and just socialize with a group of people that are interested in all aspects of the book. Just look for the cool group of people having loads of fun. Todd Pattison and Bonnie Faulkner will be on hand to make sure things don’t get out of control.

You do not have to belong to the Guild to come to Bar Bound and please feel free to bring a friend.

Paul Johnson Lecture and Workshops

Moveable Magic!
Lecture by Paul Johnson

Thursday June 20th at 7:30pm
Glickman Library
314 Forest Ave.
Portland ME 04101

Watch famed British book artist and educator Paul Johnson pull a library’s worth of books – many his own, others made by British schoolchildren – from a single suitcase! He’ll talk about the endless power of the book as an aesthetic, architectural form and its special fascination for children of all ages.

Paul will also have his own books for sale in a wide price range.

The lecture will be co-hosted by NEGBW and The Baxter Society. Founded in 1983, the Society is named in honor of James Phinney Baxter, 1831-1921, Portland mayor and philanthropist whose gifts provided the first permanent building for the Portland Public Library in 1888.

The lecture will take place at the Glickman Library on the campus of the University of Southern Maine located minutes from downtown Portland Maine. Map

There is still space available in Paul’s workshops on June 22nd and June 23rd. Please see this page for more information and registration forms: Paul Johnson Workshops
