In conjunction with the exhibition The Red Book of Carl G. Jung: Its Origins and Influence, the Library of Congress sponsored "Carl Gustav Jung and the Red Book," a symposium to examine this seminal work and the Swiss psychiatrist who created it. The seminar was held on Saturday, June 19, 2010, in the Coolidge Auditorium of the Library's Thomas Jefferson Building.
