Events for Book Readings

Collectors' Book Salon: The Great Finds Salon

Wellers is quite excited to resume our monthly get-togethers for book collectors and biblio-nerds. As is Weller Book Works’ custom for the initial salon of the New Year, on January 26th, we’ll have a sharing event for collectors. This year, we are asking you to bring and show a book that was a “great find,” and tell us why you value it and how and where you found it. One of my favorite aspects of book collecting is that the knowledgeable collector has the ability to recognize important and valuable books that others would overlook. A smart book person with a modest budget will beat wealthy buyers to great books with frequency. Join us Friday, January 26th, for The Great Finds Salon. Bring a book you discovered in an unusual place, rescued from oblivion, or plucked from chaos. We’ll take turns showing our books and telling stories about our discoveries. Readers read alone. Have you missed your bibliophilic buddies? I have. Want to make a new smart friend? Join Weller Book Works for both Collectors’ Book Salons. Friday, January 26, pick your “great find,” grab a friend, don something fine or funny and join us. On February 23 plan on hearing from Daniel Davison and seeing his interesting articles. Salons start at 6:30. The Chat begins at 7:15.

Books and Bridges presents Maeera Shreiber

Maeera Shreiber, Professor of English and Director of Religious Studies at the University of Utah, will discuss the spiritual and cultural ideas of the Judeo-Christian literary border zone. She explores Jewish writers who engage Christianity in their work — novelists and dramatists such as Amos Oz (Judas), Sholem Asch (God of Vengeance), and Henry Roth (Call It Sleep). This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.


Collector's Book Salon: Daniel Davison

On February 23rd, Daniel Davison will conduct the Collector’s Chat on the Ancient Religions of Europe, the Mediterranean on the Near East. With his collection of prints, maps and books, he will take guests on a spoken tour through the cultures and connections of the ancient Western World. Topics will include ancient Jewish and Christian personalities, ancient Nineveh, St. Catherine's of Sinai, the Nuremberg Chronicle and Sanskrit Hindu texts. Daniel’s show-and-tell will include 19th century prints, academic Victorian books, a late 17th century British study of Islam and the Arabs with thick parchment-like pages, 19th century German books illustrating Masonic themes, an early 20th century Biblical Hebrew and Syriac-Aramaic grammar book and whatever else attracts his fancy. Readers read alone. Have you missed your bibliophilic buddies? I have. Want to make a new smart friend? Join Weller Book Works for both Collectors’ Book Salons.
