Guests: Maggie Kopp, Curator of European Books in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections Department of the Library at BYU; Scott Miller, PhD, Professor of Japanese and Dean of the College of Humanities. A new exhibit at the Harold B.

The collection features the spooky Japanese ghost scroll and the strange, human hair art. Japanese Ghost Scroll Photos of Items in Vault
