Book Club: On the Map




Join us as we explore the unique way that maps relate and realign our history—and reflect the best and worst of what makes us human. In his book, Simon Garfield follows the history of maps from the early explorers’ accounts and the awe-inspiring medieval Mappa Mundi to Google Maps and the satellite renderings on our smartphones. Conservator Alice Austin will lead the discussion on chapters one through eight from On the Map. There will also be a pop-up exhibition featuring some of the Library Company’s most fascinating maps. Light refreshments will be provided.
