Booked for the Evening – A fundraiser to benefit the Newberry's collection
Help The Newberry, Chicago's independent research library since 1887, acquire a copy of Solmentes Pizza from Scratch.
Ruggles Hall, 6–8 pm on Thursday October 25, 2018 Open to the Public
From the Newberry's website:
"Booked for the Evening will give you a one-of-a-kind opportunity to interact with our librarians and curators, learn about the often unseen work they do, and raise important funds to support the growth, processing, and preservation of the Newberry’s world-class collection.
The Newberry’s curators and librarians have carefully selected a wide array of materials to be presented at Booked for the Evening, representing many areas of the collection. Guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, view and learn about the rare materials on display, and bid to “adopt” the items, enabling their acquisition, processing, or preservation.
We hope you will support our efforts to build and care for our collection."
