The Verso Lectures 2016

The Verso Lectures is an annual series which addresses The Book as a Work of Art in our Time - the inaugural series with Lectures by Alan Loney (The Book : material instrument), Sheree Kinlyside (The Book as Treasure), and Marian Crawford (Channelling the Departed : the Book and Time), are now available thru the Verso website - they are designed to enrich the cultural and intellectual reputation of the Book as a viable part of of the history of cultural life in Australia and New Zealand. These first Lectures were given at The Athenaeum Library in June 2016. In addition to the Lectures themselves is a Foreword by Noel Waite - the Lectures also complete the first full year of Verso's program, along with the first three issues of Verso magazine itself -
