A New Publication for the Friends of CABS-Minnesota

December 15, 2023.

The Friends of CABS-Minnesota have produced our fifth chapbook in the CABS Lecture Series, this time with contributions by Lorne Bair and Rob Rulon-Miller. The contents include Lorne's first talk before CABS, delivered in 2010; and Rob's last, delivered at last year's seminar.

After the 2024 seminar, both Lorne and Rob will be stepping down from their respective positions as Director and as President of the Board. Even though they'll both be sticking around CABS, we thought this made it a good time to celebrate where the seminar has been and to offer our friends a chance to contribute to the enduring future of the Seminar.

New and returning Friends will receive a complimentary copy of the chapbook with their annual $50 Friends Membership, which can be paid on the website here.

The regular edition of the chapbook is limited to 224 copies, all reserved for new and renewing Friends of CABS.

In addition to the trade edition of the chapbook, Friends also have available:

This past summer marked our second year on the campus of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, with another oversubscribed seminar. We also celebrated the second year of our Diverse Voices Fellowship, a nine-month program that included the Atlanta field school in May, online professional development, and attendance at the seminar by the Fellows—all intended to help sustain a diverse and inclusive book trade, to expand perspectives, and encourage new collaborations.

Over 3000 students have come through CABS since the seminar started in 1977 and we remain committed to our mission to educate booksellers, collectors, librarians, and archivists, to build community, and help grow the antiquarian book trade.

And we couldn’t do any of it without the help of many friends. Join us!
