Celebrate Books This Week!

If you love books (and, of course, you do!) this is your week. There is a lot to celebrate, and a lot to do:

* Join the Rosenbach Museum & Library (Thursday 9/30 - 6pm) for "Authors of Mischief", a reading of banned and censored books from their collection, including Don Quixote, Alice in Wonderland, Leaves of Grass, and more. (Mary Tasillo, Artist and Writer...and PCB board member will be reading a selection of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness)

* Explore the Collingswood Book Festival (Saturday 10/2 - 10am-4pm, where there will be nationally recognized authors/speakers for adults and children, as well as booksellers, storytellers, poetry readings, workshops, exhibitors, kid-friendly activities, and entertainment for all ages. All events are free. Stop by our PCB table to say hi and make some books!

* Venture to the Oak Knoll Book Fest (Saturday 10/2 - Sunday 10/3) No registration is required to attend the weekend events (Saturday and Sunday's talks and exhibition)

* If you haven't already, check out Space & Sequence (PCB's Members Exhibit) at the Free Library of Philadelphia. It will be on view until October 31.
