MN Reads: "it's a totem of our shared dreams"

Feb 27, 2020

Book nerds: if you had a 700-year old book in your collection, would you let anyone touch it?

If you just shrieked, internally, in horror, you'd be with most of us.

But luckily for us, Dr. Krista Twu, Associate Professor of Medieval & Renaissance Literature doesn't think that way.

Tonight (Thursday, 2/27), she'll be talking about UMD's Ramseyer Collection, and the opportunities for students and the community to learn from it.  And far from putting these ancient books under lock and key, Twu says "you should absolutely touch them."
