Virtual Book Talks - 2020 to present

The Virtual Book Talk showcases authors of recently published scholarly monographs, digital-equivalents, and creative works broadly related to book history and print culture. Each installment includes an informal presentation from the author and a Q&A with the audience.

Since the program's inception in May 2020, virtual book talks have been streamed live for registered participants and are recorded for posterity. Talks typically last 45 minutes to one hour.
