How to Make a Chapbook

SBU Libraries’ Preservation Department will be out in Southampton on Wednesday, September 27th, teaching students how to assemble their own chapbooks. Chapbooks are handmade, bound collections of writings.  They have a storied history, having served as conveyors of everything from murder ballads to folk tales to political tracts.

So come join us from 2:00 – 4:00 PM in the Library for this hands-on workshop. Once you’ve mastered the skills involved, creating the content is up to you!
