Video: Jeremy Dibbell on Rare Book School in Charlottesville, Virginia

Attention literary tourists. Spend five days in lush surroundings filled with glorious books, in courses curated by the best in the business!

I met with Jeremy Dibbell, Director of Communications & Outreach at Rare Book School (RBS) in Charlottesville, Virginia to talk about the joys and benefits of attending classes at RBS.

This from the website: “As part of your course application, you will need to provide information about your education and employment history [and] a one-page personal statement…is required for each course to which you apply. Your personal statement is the primary consideration for faculty when making admissions decisions.”

“Applications for summer 2018 courses are now being accepted via our online application system, myRBS. Along with 25 courses in Charlottesville, RBS will also offer Summer 2018 sessions at Amherst College (10–15 June), Yale University (10–15 June), the University of Pennsylvania and the Free Library of Philadelphia (10–15 June) and at the University of Virginia (June–August).”

To be considered for the first round of admissions decisions, submit your application(s) by 19 February
