Exhibition curator Sarah Colborne introduces Collected Words: From the Literary Collections at the University of Nottingham.
The exhibition ran from 8 September - 3rd December 2017, part of Manuscripts and Special Collections' exhibition programme in the Weston Gallery, Lakeside Arts Centre.
In 2015 Nottingham became one of only 20 cities around the world to be recognised by UNESCO as a City of Literature – a reflection of the city’s unique literary heritage and creativity. This exhibition highlighted the work of Nottinghamshire writers and the treasures to be found in the historic collections of local literature lovers. It also looked at the University’s role in shaping the reputations and inspiring the early careers of local poets and authors.
