About the Book Talk

A lively informal tour of the Books of Course exhibition with Macy Chadwick, Julie Chen, Betsy Davids, Michael Henninger, Charles Hobson, and Kathleen Walkup.


About the Exhibition

Drawing from their collections, nine Bay Area teachers -- Macy Chadwick, Julie Chen, Betsy Davids, Alisa Golden, Michael Henninger, Charles Hobson, Nance O'Banion, Karen Sjoholm, and Kathleen Walkup - have chosen books, objects, and creative assignments from their libraries to share in one exhibition. Presenting different teaching approaches through their selections, these educators shed light on their philosophies as well as their passions. Individual collections are reflected in different themes, for example: as a historical timeline; top ten student favorites; and books with an emphasis on language and culture. Over forty artists' works are included, each with a unique vision, and including a wide variety of processes and materials. From a book with intentionally bad printing to a book made to resemble a purse, each work serves as a gem to contemplate, with the hope that you, too, will be inspired to make books, of course.

The Books of Course exhibition runs from April 5 thru June 11, 2017 at San Francisco Center for the Book.
