During the Fall 2014 semester, we will be hosting a special series of guest blog posts promoting the Stuart Wright Collection at J.Y. Joyner Library. These posts, written by graduate students and faculty in ECU’s Department of English, highlight items of special interest in this unique literary collection, which came to ECU in 2010. Among the treasures held in the collection, you’ll find letters between Eudora Welty and Robert Penn Warren, drawings by Maurice Sendak, and, as the blog’s first post showcases, cartoons created by the young John Updike. We hope the blog sparks your interest in the Stuart Wright Collection. You’re invited to:
*Explore digital images of collection items.
*Browse finding aids for each author in the Stuart Wright Collection.
*Read the story of the Stuart Wright Collection.
*See the exhibit, Stuart Wright: A Life in Collecting.
*Visit the collection’s home in the Special Collections Reading Room on Joyner’s 3rd floor.
*Learn more about using the collection for research and teaching by asking a special collection librarian
