The awards ceremony for the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest was held last month in the Library of Congress and included a special presentation by Mark Dimunation, in which he showed off some of the Library's treasures. As one would imagine, the excitement was palpable during Mark's presentation.
Winners and attendees were also treated to a lecture by noted bibliophile and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Dirda. The talk was entitled The Thrill of the Hunt: The Serendipitous Pleasures of Book Collecting.
You can view the awards ceremony and Michael's lecture, which begins at the 29 minute mark, in the video below.
