Shell be looking at why it happened, how it happened, and how it changed the way information was stored, organized and retrieved both within the book itself and in libraries. Today, as we confront the challenges of a rapidly changing digital world, there are important lessons to be learned from the medieval past.
Catered snacks and a beer or wine is included with your ticket. A cash bar will also be available.
Doors open at 6:00 pm. Talk starts at 6:30 pm.
