The Kenneth Karmiole Endowed Lecture on the History of the Book Trade in California and the West was created in 2016 to focus on the book trade — printing, publishing, and bookselling — over the past two centuries.

Kenneth Karmiole is a philantrophist and antiquaraian bookseller. He has been a member of the Book Club of California since 1976 and is currently serving on its board of directors. The Book Club of California said, “Mr. Karmiole’s leadership and vision are inspiring. His initiative, and in particular his generous endowment — the first of its kind for this institution — will significantly bolster the Book Club of California’s ongoing efforts to engage high-profile speakers and scholars whose research and writing enlarge our understanding of the history of the book and book culture in the West.”
