A Place of Reading: Three Centuries of Reading in America

reading3

If you missed the physical exhibit A Place of Reading: Three Centuries of Reading in America hosted by the American Antiquarian Society at Smith College you may still enjoy AAS’s excellent online exhibit of the same name. The goal of the exhibit is to present “three centuries’ worth of individuals ‘caught’ in the act of reading in homes, taverns, libraries, military camps, parlors, kitchens, and beds, among other places.”

It’s appropriate that the exhibit may be viewed as a book where one flips the pages or as a webpage.
