Last chance! Rushdie Exhibit ends Sept. 26
An Exhibition Sponsored by Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL)
Schatten Gallery, Robert W. Woodruff Library
The archive of celebrated author and Emory University Distinguished Writer in Residence Salman Rushdie opened to the public Feb. 26 in Emory's Robert W. Woodruff Library. A multi-media exhibition, "A World Mapped by Stories: The Salman Rushdie Archive," is on display in the Library's Schatten Gallery until Sept. 26, 2010.
"The opening of the archive is a landmark event for scholars and the public," says Richard E. Luce, vice provost and director of Emory University Libraries. "The Rushdie archive signifies two major trends of our time: the globalization of arts and letters, and the digital world in which contemporary writers and artists, such as Mr. Rushdie, are now composing their masterpieces."
