October 15, 2015 Robert A. Clark will speak about "Ghosts in the Book Stacks: three generations publishing on the West," it will focus on publishing western books over the past century, including some of the personalities and events with which we were associated in Cleveland, Los Angeles, Spokane, Norman, and Pullman.
