Summer Cover to Cover: Ask a Librarian 
Friday, August 3 • 5-8 p.m.
Mingei International Museum
(free with museum admission)

The magic of books is undeniable. We flip their pages to unlock new adventures, new truths and new possibilities. The best books challenge our preconceived notions and open our minds. They build worlds—some resembling our own and some we’ve yet to discover.

This summer, Mingei International Museum will explore the connections between VOLUMINOUS ART – Treasures from San Diego’s University Libraries and the wonder, intrigue and challenges of all things literary, from comic books to libraries to indie bookshops.

Deepen your own relationship to books by hearing from local players in the literary scene as they reflect on their fields. Participants will discuss what it’s like to work in such a unique field, the importance of preserving priceless literature and how they share resources within the community.

Speakers include:

  • Lynda Claassen, director of Special Collections & Archives at the UC San Diego Library.
  • Diane Maher, head of Archives, Special Collections, and Digital Initiatives at the University of San Diego.
  • Anna Culbertson, Special Collections and University Archives librarian at San Diego State University.

The discussion will be moderated by the Mingei’s Library, Archives and Digitization manager, Kristi Ehrig-Burgess. The program starts at 6 p.m., seating is limited.
