    Bookbinding graduate saves the day at the BPL

    NBSS bookbinding graduate Lauren Schott, BB '13 was the Boston Public Library staff member who found two misplaced prints -- a Rembrandt and a Dürer -- from the library's collection. The missing prints created a public relations crisis for the library when the media picked up on the missing artwork. Schott, who was interviewed for The Boston Globe story said "I think there's been a lot of focus on the negative - that these items were misplaced. People need to recognize that these collections are huge, and we have amazing things. This is an opportunity for us to make these more protected and more accessible. These are national treasures."

    Nick Offerman & graduation

    The weather was perfect on Friday, May 29 as graduating students, their friends and family gathered at the school for Open House. Soon, the press showed up...and then Nick Offerman arrived. (For the few who might not know, Nick Offerman is an actor, writer, humorist and woodworker best known for playing Ron on the TV show "Parks and Recreation".) Offerman toured the school, talking to students and marveling at their work before everyone processed to Old North Church for the ceremony. As guest speaker for the event, Offerman delivered a talk that included praise, encouragement and, nor surprisingly, humor.
