Penn Libraries Presents (Regan Kladstrup): Collecting and Dating Childrens' Series Books Published by Cupples and Leon

In a talk titled "Dating Patsy Carroll, or, My Rapid Descent into Bibliomania ... and Poverty," Regan Kladstrup will share her personal collection of children's series books and talk about her ongoing research to assign printing dates to each book. Regan's collection features books printed in the first half of the 20th century by Cupples & Leon Publisher. 

Please RSVP to attend the event (in-person or on Zoom). There will be a "show and tell” at the end of the presentation featuring some of the best (and worst) books from Regan’s collection. We look forward to seeing you there!
