JCBA's Third Annual
LIBRARY WAYZGOOSE FESTIVAL
an online video event
Join us from wherever you are on Bartlemas Night!
Monday August 24, 2020
7 PM Eastern Daylight Time
(video available anytime after, too)
St. Bartholomew is a patron saint of bookbinders, and his feast day, Bartlemas, is a red letter day for papermakers and printers, too. Especially in England, where the Bartlemas Wayzgoose celebration has become a traditional day of festivity in printshops, celebrating the printer's craft and the transition from summer to autumn.
JCBA's celebration this year will be a virtual one. While we'll miss seeing you all in person at the Jaffe, the good news is our celebration this year can be world wide. Save the date and we'll keep you posted here and via Facebook and Instagram (@jaffecenterforbookarts) with video links and watch parties. Happy Wayzgoose!
