Panel Discussion: Why Do We Love Books?

Location: U-M Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery, 913 S. University Avenue Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1190
Calendar: Stamps Events

Many people claim to love books, even if they haven’t read one in years, and to be enamored with libraries, even if they haven’t stepped foot in one since childhood. Why? This panel discussion will bring together experts with different perspectives on the question of why we love books and libraries. Professor Susan Gelman from the U-M Department of Psychology, co-owner of Literati, Michael Gustafson, and founder of the Ann Arbor Book Society, Rachel Pastiva, will be joined by moderator Jamie Lausch Vander Broek, a librarian at the U-M Library and Ann Arbor District Library Trustee.
