The 2019 SNLS AGM (3 pm) and Annual Lecture (5 pm) will take place on Friday 15 November 2019 in the Upper Vestry Hall of St George’s Church Bloomsbury, which will allow us to explore the early modern book production and organisation of the Baroque period. The Annual Lecture will be given by our member David McOmish (University of Glasgow); the title of the lecture is ‘Reconstructing the Library of a Neo-Latinist: Adam King’s Scientific and Classical Books’. From 12pm to 2pm, before the AGM, there will be a book display and drop-in discussion, organised by some of the committee members, at UCL Special Collections as part of the Being Human Festival (UCL, South Junction Reading Room).
