Last weekend was a busy one for the Clark.
On April 2nd, we were thrilled to have John Wilson Foster here from across the pond, giving a lecture on Oscar Wilde entitled “Green Carnations: Wilde, Culture, and Crime.” You can read a description of the lecture topic in an earlier Clog post here. The lecture was most enjoyable, as was the reception that followed.
On Sunday the 3rd, we were so happy to welcome back our former head librarian and celebrate “An Afternoon with Bruce Whiteman.” Bruce entertained us with a recounting of some of his favorite acquisitions while at the Clark, stories of books that “got away,” a poetry reading, and piano recital as well! It was quite a tour de force. We thank Bruce for traveling to be with us once again, and hope he will return again soon, as he is greatly missed in the Los Angeles rare books community.
Below, you can view a gallery of images from both of last weekend’s events.
Thank you to all who came out to both events this weekend, we love seeing old friends – and making new ones.
