Explore Treasures of the Borges Collection in the First Floor Gallery of Special Collections

Please come to the First Floor Gallery of the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library on May 3 at 3:00 p.m. and let curator Nora Benedict be your guide at the opening of the exhibition “‘Armar páginas, corregir pruebas’: Jorge Luis Borges as Author, Editor, and Promulgator,” about the life and works of the famed Argentinian author and Nobel Laureate.

In the display of treasures from the Library’s Borges Collection are rare first-editions of his fiction and examples of his work as a Spanish translator of Kafka, Faulkner, Virginia Woolf, and Melville among others.

Also featured is Borges’ influential literary criticism championing popular genres such as hard-boiled detective fiction with its dark, ambiguous themes that are reflected in his own fiction’s preoccupation with labyrinths and mirrors.

Cookies and lemonade will be served.
