David Stern Lecture: The Lives of Jewish Books

As we near the close of physical version of The People in the Books (the online version will, of course remain online), we look forward to one more lecture dealing with Hebrew manuscripts.  On January 22, as part of the Grolier Club's Bibliography Week, Professor David Stern (University of Pennsylvania) will be speaking at Columbia on "The Lives of Jewish Books." 

The lecture will highlight two medieval manuscripts – one Ashkenazic and one Sephardic, and will describe the stories that they represent.  All are welcome to 523 Butler Library at 6 PM for the lecture.

Remember, the exhibit will close on January 25!  Hours for the exhibition are 9-4:45, Monday through Friday.
