Panelists include Megan Heffernan, assistant professor of English at DePaul University, Kathryn James, curator of Early Modern and Osborn Collections at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and Aaron T. Pratt, the Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Curator of Early Books and Manuscripts at the Harry Ransom Center.

Following the discussion, attendees are invited to view the Collated and Perfect display in the "Stories to Tell" exhibition and enjoy a reception. Attendees will also receive a copy of the publication "Collated & Perfect," written by Kathryn James and Aaron Pratt.  Free. Doors open 30 minutes in advance.
