The Redwood is entrusted with the care and preservation of many items, from volumes to maps to furniture, that are not often in the public eye because of their fragility and value.  Jen Tuleja, Executive Director, and Elaine Bunnell, Senior Staff Member, will share some of these special treasures in an unusual Life of the Mind Salon this Thursday.  Many of these items are rarely seen, and all boast a fascinating provenance. A wine and cheese reception will be held at 5:30, followed by the presentation.  Free for members; $10 for non-members.
