Claremont Discourse Lecture: "Sylvia Beach and Company"

Prof. Keri Walsh, Department of Literature, CMC
4:15 PM Thurs., Feb. 3 | Founders Room, 2nd Fl, Honnold/Mudd Library

As founder of the great Parisian bookstore, Shakespeare and Company--and as friend and promoter of such authors as James Joyce, Ezra Pound, and Gertrude Stein--Sylvia Beach was central to the revolution of literary modernism. It was she who first published Joyce's Ulysses. Professor Walsh, editor of The Letters of Sylvia Beach (published in 2010 by Columbia University Press), will discuss Beach's life and career as the proprietor of Shakespeare and Company between 1919 and the Second World War. She will read from Beach's letters and discuss Beach's relationships with Joyce, Stein, Hemingway, and others, as well as doing a brief visual presentation of images from Beach's life in expatriate Paris.

Claremont Discourse Lectures are free and open to all.

Faculty Collections Review Period Begins

Libraries periodically remove books from their collections to make space for new books. At the Claremont Colleges Library space has become severely limited. The intercollegiate Advisory Board for Library Planning, working with Library staff, has developed an annual process to review library books for removal from the collection. This review process includes a component that ensures faculty voices are heard. We encourage faculty to read the instructions in the Faculty Collections Review Guide and participate in the project. Feel free to contact library staff at any point if you have questions or need assistance.
