Wine Librarians Association

This looks like too much fun. Is there a beer Librarians Association?

I'd like to invite you all to a meeting of the Wine Librarians Association on Thursday, October 28, 2004, at California Poly Pomona. Where else can you learn about much about the neglected history of wine in Southern California, explore a fascinating sub-genre of librarianship, and get a great meal and wine, for free. Hurry, the dinner slots will probably fill up fast.

Schedule:

1-3pm - Join students in the Wine Education Auditorium to hear presentations by Nina Wemyss on Wine, Art and Civilization, and Tom Pinney, editor of the Brady Book on Roy Brady, an undiscovered, followed by a wine tasting and opportunity to purchase The Brady Book.

3-4pm - Visit the University Library Special Collections Room to explore the Wine Industry Collection and view exhibits featuring the history of wine in Southern California.

4-6pm - Wine Librarians Meeting (held in the Board Room adjacent to the Wine Education Auditorium). This might be of interest to students and others who would like to find out about professional concerns of a group of librarians who manage focused special collections. Or you might opt to skip this section, and explore the campus or environs.

6-8pm - Enjoy an elegant dinner with your colleagues in the President's Dining Room at The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch (part of Collins School of Hospitality Management)

Please R.S.V.P. to Danette Cook Adamson at 909-869-3109 or dcadamson@csupomona.edu. NOTE: Dinner seating is limited and reservations must be made in advance with Danette.
