Event Details:

The final "Green Teas" event of the year, featuring the gems of Stanford's Special Collections. Professor Seth Lerer of the English Department, ever lively, will facilitate our exploration of some of the neatest marginalia in the Stanford collection, including what is scratched into our copies of Aesop's Fables from 1561, Dante, 1491, and Virgil's Works, 1522. The frantic scribbling of five hundred years ago is not so dissimilar to our own marginal ponderings today - whether insipired by admiration, scorn, or that perennial marginal muse, confusion. Fascinating to the student, book lover, and people who enjoy eating indulgently, alike. Lerer is not to be missed, and eating, as always, is delicious.
