9 October 2014, 12-1:30pm

2B48 Kroch Library, Cornell University Library, Ithaca, New York 14853

San Francisco–based antiquarian book dealer, collector and historian Gerard Koskovich discovered some of the gems of our current exhibition “Speaking of Sex” and is responsible for a number of our fascinating collections of historic queer material. Come hear his stories of finding these treasures. How and why does he do it? And how do dealers and collectors in general contribute to the possibilities for queer scholarship?
