Robert Sabuda & Movable Book Society Events

          I was able to attend the lecture by award-winning pop-up artist/engineer Robert Sabuda today at the Harold B. Lee Library on BYU campus. It was so interesting! I had no idea pop-up books, or moveable books, had such a history. And did you know that there is a whole society dedicated to these types of books? It's called the Movable Book Society founded by Utah-based collector Anne Montanaro Staples. This post is to alert you to events in the next few days of Robert Sabuda and the Movable Book Society. ((I'll post more fully about Sabuda's lecture soon, but I'm in a time crunch because I'm going to the Brandon Mull & Lisa McMann presentation at the Provo Library this evening.))

Right Now: There is currently a small exhibit of pop-up and movable books in Special Collections at the Harold B. Lee Library on Brigham Young University campus. Click here for more information.

Right Now: There is currently an exhibit of pop-ups and movable books at the Salt Lake City Public Library called Pop-ups: Books That Spring to Life. The items exhibited are from Ann Montanaro Staples collection. The exhibit ends Saturday, Sept. 29th. For more information click here.

** Tonight (Sept. 26): Robert Sabuda will sign books at the King's English bookshop at 7pm. For more information click here. **

Sept. 27: Following the Gallery talk lecture there will be a public reception at The Gallery at Library Square in the Main Library on level 4. (210 E 400 S)

Sept. 27-29: The Moveable Book Society 9th Biennial Conference is this weekend, Sept. 27-29th in Salt Lake City. The event will host many speakers including Robert Sabuda. For more information visit the Movable Book Society Conference information page.

To coincide with all of this pop-up goodness, there also might be a special opening of a new shop in Salt Lake this weekend called The Red Queen. It will specialize in pop-ups and art books! Keep your eyes open for it!
