On February 10, 1837, Alexander Pushkin, universally acknowledged by Russians as their national poet, died from wounds received in a duel two days earlier. He was 37 years old.
Russian geniuses live extraordinary lives, and even their death becomes the final chapter of their works.

18-story bookcase!

“Archiving and preserving outlets such as Twitter will enable future researchers access to a fuller picture of today’s cultural norms, dialogue, trends, and events to inform scholarship, the legislative process, new works of authorship, education, and other purposes.”
Larger and small institutions alike are trying to figure out ways to preserve digital ephemera such as podcasts and tweets.

Card catalogues still useful at the New York Metropolitan Museum:

"Although virtually all the information on our catalogue cards has been entered in our computer database...the card catalogue remains an important resource. The cards have useful handwritten annotations that do not always translate exactly to a database environment."
—Gretchen Wold, Senior Collections Manager, Department of European Paintings

Staring unflinchingly into the abyss of slavery, historical persons and events provided the original inspiration for Beloved. Sethe, the novel’s protagonist, was born a slave and escaped to Ohio. Eighteen years later, she is still not free; she has too many memories of Sweet Home, the Kentucky farm where she witnessed so many hideous things. And Sethe’s new home is haunted by the ghost of her baby, who died nameless and whose tombstone is engraved with a single word: Beloved. Filled with poetry and suspense, Beloved is regarded by many readers as Morrison's finest work.

Dr. Connie Calloway will lead our discussion. Distance students and faculty are invited to join in via Google Hangouts: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/event/c0lnc83s5ok7tecuqdcnjg0mcno?authuser=0&eid=100028809078157626561&hl=en

Potter first sent her publisher some details of The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots in 1914. Her archives include three handwritten drafts of the story, a typewritten manuscript, and rough sketches. In addition to the new characters, the story will feature familiar Potter characters like Peter Rabbit.
‘The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots’ will reach readers more than 100 years after it was written
