Please join us for our final Iowa Bibliophiles of the academic year! 


On April 12, Special Collections will celebrate some of the fantastic and unique additions to our collections we've made over the last year. At this event curators Eric Ensley, Tim Shipe, and Peter Balestrieri will discuss everything from early modern Ethiopian manuscripts, artists' books, Blaxploitation film scripts, and a Dada publication so rare, it has taken 30 years to find! Come get your own up-close look at these items that continue to show why UIowa Special Collections is a must for researchers, educators, and the curious. 

This event is free and open to everyone. It will be held in the Special Collections reading room, located on the 3rd floor of the Main Library. For all questions, please contact Elizabeth Riordan at elizabeth-riordan@uiowa.edu.
