The Center for the Book at Mills College was established in 1989 to promote the cultural, literary, and aesthetic heritage of the book. Programs and projects encompass contemporary and historical concerns, and include the book arts, literacy, and local history. The Center for the Book involves both Mills College and the local communities, acknowledging the extraordinarily rich resources of the Bay Area. Projects sponsored or co-sponsored by the Center for the Book include publications, lectures and workshops by visiting or local book artists, historians, and others; exhibitions; conferences; and other special events. All the center’s events are free and open to the public unless otherwise specified.
