The Life of a Book

booksGemma Savage is a bookseller from Cambridge with a curiosity for little details and a love of books. The particular scent, the worn cover, the musings of previous owners written in the margins many years ago or maybe even a childhood memory of where and with whom a certain book was enjoyed… for centuries books have told a vibrant tale beyond their text. It is interesting notion to think of a book as having a life of its own –  being printed, then carefully selected, perhaps gifted, abandoned, rediscovered…  Gemma  will be talking about the discoveries in her precious collection and invites you to share the story of your favourite book and consider what makes it so special.
