Biblio Bus Day Trip to New York City Saturday, April 7th!


Join the Watts History of the Book Program on the Biblio Bus day trip to New York City on Saturday, April 7th. We will be travelling to NYC on a luxury motor coach and enjoying an exclusive tour of the New York Historical Society’s “Revolution! The Atlantic World Reborn,” an exhibition featuring material from the John Carter Brown Library’s world class Haitian collection. A tour and dinner will follow at the famous Grolier Club, including guest speaker Karen Gorst, calligrapher and illuminator. Some free time will be provided to explore and enjoy parts of the Big Apple. We hope you can join us on a Biblio Bus tour of New York City!

This trip is co-sponsored by the Pine Tree Foundation, with the goal to take students to venues with exhibitions that promote direct contact with original materials and encourage a hands-on approach with rare
maps, books and more.
