Wednesday saw the first in our 2011/12 Winter Lecture Series here at the library. Chris Wiblin gave a fascinating and very well illustrated lecture on John Vibert, the Penzance printer, bringing a car-boot full of framed prints both from his own collection and borrowed, and also showed some of the Vibert prints we have here in the archives at the library. During the tea break, everyone enjoyed looking at Chris’s collection of prints – and also the display Sheila (volunteer) had put together in the library reception room – as well as the Saffron cake that was on offer… Many thanks to Chris for his insightful lecture – also to Ros et al for tea-making and washing up duties.
Next month’s lecture will be on Wednesday 9th November at 2:15pm and is being given by John Rawles – ‘Mathematics, Morality & Metaphor’. The lectures are open to members and non-members so if you’d like to come along please do – admission by donation, (free tea + cake).
