"Dating Patsy Carroll, or, My Rapid Descent into Bibliomania ... and Poverty"

Regan Kladstrup will share her personal collection of children's series books and talk about her ongoing research to assign printing dates to each book. Regan's collection features books printed in the first half of the 20th century by Cupples & Leon Publisher. 

This event will be in person at the Class of '55 2nd floor Van Pelt, just before you get to the Lippincott Library and on zoom. 

For those attending in person, there will be a "show and tell” at the end of the presentation featuring some of the best (and worst) books from Regan’s collection.

We look forward to seeing you there!

If you are interested in presenting at one of our Wednesday at 12:00 events, please fill out the Plenn Libraries Presents form.
