Another alert for today's anniversary. The Unbound Book Festival at the University of Missouri presents a talk about the Charlotte Brontë's manuscripts at the Special Collections and Rare Books department of the MU:
MU Libraries Special Collection
Stamper Commons, 13.00h
The Secret and Lily Hart (1833)

Step into the world of Charlotte Brontë’s childhood in this presentation on an original manuscript containing two short stories she wrote at the age of seventeen.  Attendees will hear about the history of the manuscript, how it ended up in Missouri, and its relationship to Brontë’s other works.  There will also be a rare opportunity to view the manuscript, which is smaller than an index card and written in an almost microscopic script. The Brontë manuscript is among the most valuable and culturally significant materials in the collections of the Special Collections and Rare Books department at the University of Missouri Libraries. The department houses rare and unique manuscripts, books, photos, maps, comics, artifacts, and art that span over four thousand years.

Kelli Hansen is a librarian in the Special Collections and Rare Books Department at the University of Missouri Libraries, where she teaches and does reference work, outreach, and web development.
