Book Lovers Road Show A Success
- On April 14, the Lackawanna Historical Society and the Friends of the Weinberg Library hosted The Book Lovers Road Show conducted by Jack Walsdorf. Walsdorf, an author, book collector, lecturer, and appraiser from Portland, Oregon, presented a brief talk titled "ABC's of Book Collecting" before providing on-the-spot appraisals of books brought to the presentation by audience members. Walsdorf chatted with audience members about each book and had two student volunteers on hand to search bookseller Web sites to provide more information on each book's value.
