ABAA & RBS One Day Seminar – Thur Oct 27

We are very pleased to announce that the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America (ABAA) and Rare Book School are again co-sponsoring a one-day seminar series at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA on Thursday, 27 October 2016 (just prior to the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair). These seminars have been designed to be of interest to book collectors, booksellers, and librarians, but signup is open to anyone with an interest in the topics covered. The cost to attend the seminar series is $500. Seminar instructors will be Terry Belanger, Don Lindgren, Nina Musinsky, Todd Pattison, and David Whitesell.
As space is limited, registration for the seminar series will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. As part of the signup process, you will be asked to rank your choices for each concurrent session, and these will be assigned until each seminar has reached capacity. We encourage “early bird” signup before 5 October, to improve your chances of getting a seat in your top-choice seminars. Participants will also receive a complimentary pass to the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair.
See the event page at http://rarebookschool.org/seminar-series-2016/ for a full schedule, seminar descriptions, and a link to the signup form.

We hope to see you in Boston! If you have any questions, please contact:
