The Book Unbound is a year-long initiative centered around the theme of books, libraries, and information, in conjunction with the opening of Sawyer Library. It focuses on exploring the diverse ways in which people preserve and convey ideas, creative works, data, and other forms of information. The project features a wide array of public presentations, exhibitions, performances, and courses that imagine the theme from the many perspectives represented by the various parts of the college.
The Book Unbound is an opportunity to bring the college together around questions and themes that are at the heart of the college’s intellectual and cultural life. It also highlights the central importance of collaborative work at Williams, as well as the many extraordinary spaces and resources across the college that enable and enrich that work.
