Winner of the 2013 Don Dario Scholarship

Renaissance Books awarded the 2013 Don Dario Scholarship!

logo for Renaissance BooksWe want to extend a hearty appreciation to everyone who applied for this year’s Don Dario scholarship for the 2013 Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar.

Each year, we receive a slew of applications from completely worthy and wonderful booksellers, and the hardest part is choosing only one of them to win!  After much deliberation, the selection committee has chosen Malcolm Moncrief-Spittle of Renaissance Books to be the recipient of the tuition scholarship for 2013.  Congratulations, Malcolm!

Malcolm will receive the full cost of tuition for attendance, $250 toward travel and accommodations, and have all monthly fees rebated for one year of Biblio’s lowest commission billing option.    There is also a $250 donation heading to the Alan Duff Charitable Foundation (better known as Duffy Books in Homes) to assist them with their laudable goal of providing free books to over 100,000 New Zealand children, three times a year.

Everyone here at Biblio wishes Malcolm a safe journey, a wealth of knowledge to take back home to his bookshop in Dunedin, and an overall wonderful time in Colorado!

To the many booksellers that sadly we couldn’t choose this year, we hope that you will apply again next year!  Biblio.com offers an annual scholarship to the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar – The Don Dario Honorary Scholarship is offered in keeping with Biblio’s stated commitment to Environment, Independence and Community.

Amber is the current marketing coordinator at Biblio. A lifelong love of the written word brought her to Biblio and she happily spends her days talking about books and delving into the wide world of antiquarian books.

You can also find her in the garden or writing about brewing and plant adventures at Pixie’s Pocket.
