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 of material from the literary archives and collections of printed books held by the University of Nottingham, 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.
