Note as of 3/15/2020: Due to library closure, this meeting will be held online via Zoom.

The usual meeting location is the Lake Forest Park Branch of the King County Library, on the 1st Floor of Lake Forest Park Town Center, but this month it will be held online.

This event is free and open to all editors.


Book Arts of Utah | Creating Custom Book Cloth

April 11, 2020

Hosted/Organized by: The Book Arts Program at the University of Utah

Fabric offers an attractive and durable solution for covering boxes and book covers, but ready-made bookcloth presents a limited palette of mostly solid colors and humdrum textures. Don’t get hemmed in by run-of-the-mill choices! In this workshop, participants expand their ability to tailor bookwork by learning to back natural-fiber fabric with simple materials and easy-to-access tools.


NEG | Editing Technology Meeting

April 11, 2020

Do you have questions about using Word more effectively? Tips on doing markup in Acrobat? Suggestions for online editing resources? Are you interested in learning more about PerfectIt, macros, Google Ngram, or wildcard searches? This happy hour is intended to bring editors together to learn new software tricks and share our technical knowledge with one another.

The gathering will be held online via Zoom.
