Coffee and Conversations | Mingei International Museum

Join the Mingei Library team in October for a celebration of National Book Month! They'll share some of their favorite quirky and rare books with you from the Library’s art book collection.

The team will also discuss what makes a book rare and give an overview of the history of books and printing. Enjoy a variety of our oldest and newest acquisitions as well as a unique book that you won’t see anywhere else!
