Join us on the 30th anniversary of the Rossell Hope Robbins Library to celebrate the acquisition of a rare 1554 edition of John Gower’s Confessio Amantis. The Robbins Library has long been a center for the study of Gower, and this purchase brings into our collection the primary means by which centuries of writers and readers encountered the 14th century poet. We will commemorate the event with an exhibit in the Robbins Library, highlighting the 1554 edition and related books from Rare Books and Special Collections, as well as a public lecture sequence on Oct. 19 and 20. 

Reception and celebration to follow.
