Can the Book Survive the Information Revolution? KSL Humanities Week Lecture & Reception
Noted author, collector, publisher, and lecturer, Robert H. Jackson speaks at KSL on Tuesday, April 17 at 4:30 p.m. for Humanities Week. Addressing the 2007 theme of Information Society he offers a wide variety of topics to intrigue you, including the trends and controversies of the book world, the life of the book as we know it and new models you might not have seen yet.
Jackson is widely read and published, and passionate as an author, once following a subject to Greenland and staying for months to document his work. You'll find his humor engaging, and his remarks thought-provoking.
The lecture is open to the public and will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Dampeer Room on the second floor, Tuesday April 17.
Note: A reception follows the lecture, to launch the special exhibition The History of the Book—Always in Transition.
Jackson has lectured at the Library of Congress, research universities, and The Grolier, Caxton, and Rowfant Clubs in New York City, Chicago, and Cleveland on literature, rare books, libraries, and English & American 19th & 20th century authors and illustrators, Oceanic and African Tribal Art, Southeast Asian manuscripts and more. Jackson is widely published and the editor of Book Talk: Essays on Books and Collecting, Booksellers, and Special Collections.
