Our neighbors at the Contemporary Jewish Museum have a book exhibit opening tomorrow.

Celebrating the book as object, artist Josh Greene turns the gallery into a place where celebrities and private individuals present books that have been important to their lives, and shared readings take place over the run of the show. The exhibition, in two parts (Read by Famous and The Library of Particular Significance), gently coerces the visitor to think about how they might interact with one another in the museum space.

Receive two-for-one entry off full price admission when you mention the American Bookbinders Museum! Visit the exhibition between March 26 and  June 28, 2015 to make the most of this generous offer.
