Bookish things to do in 2017

It’s January – the perfect time to start planning for the rest of the year.  I’ve always found traveling a great excuse opportunity to learn new things.  As much as I enjoy a good beach vacation, my favorite escape more closely resembles one of the opportunities below.

This somewhat random list of workshops and learning opportunities have come across my virtual desk recently.   I thought I would put them together in one place as a public service. I preface this all by saying I have no personal connection to any of these (although I have attended London Rare Books School and have taken a workshop with Rachel Hazell, so I can personally recommend both.)   Having said that, given unlimited time and money, I would absolutely want to participate in all them.

I will be updating this list as I hear of new events.   Please feel free to comment on our Facebook page with any others you would recommend.
