Come out on Wednesday, February 9 for a fascinating talk on rare books at UBC Library, courtesy of the Arts Wednesdays program.

What determines a “rare” book?  What authors and topics are included in this exclusive designation?  Who collects rare books and why? Join Ralph Stanton, Head of Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) at UBC Library, as he explores the known and unknown treasures housed in UBC’s collection at the Irving K. Barber Learning Center. Discover topics ranging from classic literary collections to the world of golf.

Arts Wednesdays, a free public lecture series now in its seventh successful season, brings UBC’s outstanding Faculty of Arts to the entire community. Held at Robson Square in downtown Vancouver, the winter 2011 season will feature a series devoted to the Creative Arts. The February 9 event begins at 6 p.m.; Robson Square is located at 800 Robson Street.
