maud/olson library

I’m a member of the Steering Committee of the Maud/Olson Library, a community-based repository in Gloucester, Massachusetts, affiliated with the Gloucester Writers Center. This Library consists of all the books that Charles Olson was thought to have ever read, collected by scholar and book collector Ralph Maud. The Library is available as a community resource for curriculum-building, and open to browse on certain hours.

An article on this space and how it informs our understanding of poets’ libraries as conceptual units is forthcoming in Book History 2020.
