Literary Worlds: Illumination of the Mind
This exhibit focuses on poets and novelists in various stages of their careers and their creative processes. All are or were part of a community of writers, and other authors inspired them during the course of their careers. The displayed manuscripts, letters, drawings, and artifacts come from Perry Special Collections. They provide a glimpse into favorite authors perhaps not considered before. The exhibition shares the spark of creativity and individual personality which shaped a select group of authors ranging from Victorian times until today. This exhibit is located in the Special Collections Reference area on level 1 in the Harold B. Lee Library and will be on display fromAugust 15, 2010 – June 15, 2011. The exhibit may be viewed during the hours that Special Collections is open. Additionally, an online exhibition is available with more items and more commentary than the actual exhibition could accommodate.
