Classic Literary Texts in Archives & Special Collections

On September 28, in conjunction with the Montana Book Festival, the Mansfield Library will feature presentations by Ashby Kinch, Rob Browning and Prageeta Sharma as part of our “Classic Literary Texts in Archives and Special Collections” event. All three professors, and Elizabeth Hubble from WGSS, will be presenting about a different literary text or author.

The event, “Classic Literary Texts in Archives and Special Collections,” will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, in the Mansfield Library’s Theta Rho Room on the fourth floor.

The event will conclude with an exclusive tour of literary texts held by Archives and Special Collections, including Debra Magpie Earling’s limited edition “The Lost Journals of Sacajewea,” Richard Hugo’s poetry notebooks and a handwritten draft of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poem “Human Life’s Mysteries.” Rare, original volumes of Milton, Geoffrey Chaucer and Walt Whitman also will be displayed.
