YORK ANTIQUARIAN BOOK SEMINAR SCHOLARSHIP FOR WOMEN

The Second Shelf is dedicated to selling and championing rare books, first editions, and rediscovered work by women. In consideration of the historic imbalance and inequality of women in the book trade, and also in the interest of providing access to women who might otherwise not be able to afford to attend York Antiquarian Books Seminar, September 9-11, 2019, The Second Shelf will provide tuition fees and four nights accommodation to a woman wishing to pursue her personal or professional interest in rare books. The accommodation will be booked and paid for on your behalf.

We are pleased to announce Amira Salleh as the recipient of the 2019 Second Shelf Scholarship.
