Literary Posters and Advertising

May 24, 2021

Has an image ever inspired you to read? Join poster expert and Poster House Advisory Board member Nicholas Lowry of Swann Auction Galleries as he explores and celebrates how books, reading, booksellers, publishers, and literacy itself have been promoted graphically in posters since the late 1800s.

This program is intended for all ages, but especially adult audiences. Closed captioning will be available.

This program will be streamed live on Zoom and recorded. You must register with your email address in order to receive the link to participate, which will be sent to your email the day of the event.
