OPUS Book Exchange
OPUS Book Exchange BY ARCHIVE PROJECT
A book exchange event inviting everyone from bibliophiles to weekend readers to select a book from their personal libraries and reflects inspiration or represents a pivotal point in their life to exchange at random with another participant. As a participant, you will take home a “new” book, a unique Archive Book Bag made specifically for this event and a new connection with a member of your community.
Sign up. It’s $40 to sign up, gift a book, receive a different book plus your own Archive book bag, and eat and drink tasty things with good people.
Bring a book- one that has been influential to you or represents a pivotal moment in your life.
Bring your book to the registration table, pick up a bag, fill out your ex libris. Place your book and ex libris in the book bag.
Return your book with bag to the table and get your badge and ID tag for your new book. This may or may not be the name of a writer, artist, curator.
Get a drink, enjoy yourself, talk amongst friends, make new friends.
When we make the announcement, go to your new book and open it. Make a face to reflect your immediate reaction to the book you received.
Find the person whose book you received. Meet someone new, learn something new.
