    Abstract:
    “Engaging Books” is a workshop about human relationships with books and, more specifically, how the emotional, tactile, imaginative, and intellectual engagements we have with books can translate in a digital context. The workshop consists of three parts and can take between one and three hours based on the number of people participating. Part 1 consists of a series of questions about participants’ favorite childhood books that prompt consideration of books as material and visual, as well as textual, objects. Part 2 of the workshop puts participants in the role of museum curators, asking them to think about creative ways to display their favorite childhood books in a museum exhibit. And Part 3 engages participants as digital humanists, asking participants to consider how best to present all aspects of their favorite book in a digital context.
