“Bibliography on Baker Street” Workshop

Date: 19 March 2022
Time: 2:00–4:00 p.m. ET
Location: Grolier Club of New York
Presented by: Barbara Heritage, Glen Miranker & Laura Perrings

Rare Book School is pleased to announce a workshop being held in conjunction with Glen Miranker’s exhibition of his Sherlockian collection at the Grolier Club of New York, Sherlock Holmes in 221 Objects. RBS staff members Barbara Heritage and Laura Perrings are leading the workshop, which is titled “Bibliography on Baker Street.” Drawing on moments such as the watermark detection scene in “A Scandal in Bohemia,” the workshop is designed around a Holmes-like scenario and a series of antiquarian items allowing participants to use bibliographical methods to piece together evidence historical (and criminal!) in nature.
The workshop is free of charge and limited to twelve participants. No background in rare books is required to attend. This event will be held at the Grolier Club this Saturday, 19 March, 2–4:00 p.m. ET, with a short tour afterward led by Glen Miranker, a member of Rare Book School’s Board of Directors, on the piracies of Sherlock Holmes. There is an optional reception at 5:00 p.m. ET.
Registration is first-come, first-served. To reserve one of the remaining seats, please contact Laura Perrings no later than 2:00 p.m. ET on Friday, 18 March at laura.perrings@virginia.edu.
