Since 1995, the Rare Book & Manuscript Library has presented its annual lecture during Bibliography Week, when the principal national organizations devoted to book history have their annual meetings in New York. The series explores topics in a wide variety of related fields including calligraphy, paper, type design, printing, illustration and book binding.
Michael F. Suarez, S.J. is Director of Rare Book School, Professor of English, University Professor, and Honorary Curator of Special Collections at the University of Virginia. A Jesuit priest, he holds four masters degrees (two each in English and theology) and a D.Phil. in English from Oxford.
A reception will immediately follow the talk in the Low Memorial Library Rotunda.
