Meet the Books

Tastes of the University


A series of lunch hour walks featuring some quirky and offbeat places on campus. These casual walk and talk events will tour the places that never feature in the guidebooks or brochures, yet sometimes make the grade as backdrops in Hollywood films

CurrentTour -  Touch the Books

Come and touch history at the 'Meet the Books' event held at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. With the guidance of medieval manuscript and early book librarian Pearce Carefoote, you will have a chance to hold and leaf through medieval texts, early Shakespeare and Chaucer prints and a Renaissance-era portolan atlas.

An extraordinary experience!


Leader: Pearce J. Carefoote is the medieval manuscript and early book librarian at the Fisher Rare Book Library

Meeting Place:

Meet at the atrium of the Fisher Rare Book Library, 120 St George Street (the south tower of Robarts).  As soon as you come up the steps and go through the Fisher revolving doors, you will go past exit control and into the main exhibition area.
