Odd Topics Society Luncheon (Wed. 22 Oct, 2014 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm)

Choice samples from a 30,00-napkins collection, along with their stories, is on the table for Albion College Library's October Odd Topics Society Luncheon. Albion resident Cathy Campbell's presentation begins shortly after noon on Wednesday, October 22, in Baldwin Hall's Mary Sykes Room.

Campbell began her collection at the age of five, when she brought her first paper napkin home from a birthday party. Her current collection includes hundreds of autographed napkins, a napkin from the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, napkins from the early 20th century and napkins commemorating thousands of events. Campbell and her collection have been featured in print and television media, and she is currently applying for recognition by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Friends of the Albion College Library sponsors the Odd Topics Lecture series, presented monthly at Albion College. The discussions are open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend. The charge for the lunch is $5.50 to $7 and reservations are not required.
