The Rosenbach Podcast
Thousands of rare books, manuscripts, and works of art—some famous and some rarely seen—live within the walls of The Rosenbach, and each one has a story to tell. Institutions like The Rosenbach are more than just repositories of history; they provide a space for people to come together and make sense of their shared futures.
In our new podcast, members of The Rosenbach’s Collections staff reveal what it’s like to spend your 9-to-5 caring for generations of history, and share some of their favorite surprises that reside on our shelves. From Dr. Rosenbach’s tragic connection to the sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic to his work in refugee resettlement on the eve of the Second World War, there are endless stories to tell.
Along the way, we’ll be joined by thought leaders including Philadelphia Poets Laureate Trapeta Mayson and Yolanda Wisher, Philadelphia-based book artist Colette Fu, and bibliophiles from around the world, for conversations about the place of rare books, libraries, and museums in modern life.
