Buying Books with A H Reed

What was it like to work with A H Reed as a donor? How were rare books and manuscripts selected and purchased before the dawn of the Internet?

Former Dunedin City and National Librarian Dr Mary Ronnie will address these topics and more as she speaks about her experiences working with A H Reed during the 1960s and early 1970s.

This talk is in connection with the latest Reed Gallery exhibition The Happy Wanderer: Walking Around New Zealand with A H Reed.
