Collectors' Book Salon

Book-lovers and collectors meet at Weller Book Works Collectors' Book Salons on the last Friday of each month, January through October. Serious and frivolous bibliophiles meet in our Rare Book Department for friendship conversation, edification and bibliolust. We start at 6:30 pm and at 7:15, an invited bibliophile leads the Collectors' Chat about a topic of her or his particular knowledge and passion. And at each salon there is also a special deal on rare books.

Gregory C. Thompson, Ph.D. is Associate Dean of the University of Utah's J. Willard Marriott Library for Special Collections and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of History will lead our Collectors' Chat on October 27. Greg served on the staff of the University of Utah's American West Center; helped develop tribal histories and oral history collections for fifteen Western United States tribes; and has published several monographs on the Ute tribe. In the 1980's he co-founded Marriott Library's Ski Archives Program. He has lectured widely and published numerous articles on the history of skiing in the Intermountain area. Greg Thompson is also general editor for the Tanner Trust Publication Series, Utah, The Mormons, and the West.
