Photojournalism: Ethics, Imagery, and Understanding Our World

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.

Chris Robinson Brotherhood

"They say the only people who know true freedom are musicians and gangsters," Chris Robinson says with a laugh. "And Bob Dylan said to live outside the law you must be honest. We're living in these anxiety-filled times, in an era of 'no truth,' but what our music represents is this truly honest way of communicating with people, and that's a really freeing thing."
