This week’s talk: A Full House: Books about Cards and Gaming at Vanderbilt

Come learn more about the recent acquisitions of one of the world’s greatest collections of books on cards and gaming. What does the author of Alice in Wonderland have to do with gaming? What decisive role did a Vanderbilt play in the history of bridge? And how did a card game figure in Napoleon’s return to Paris?  All this will be revealed when we show our hand in this lunchtime presentation with University Librarian Valerie Hotchkiss.
