New semester and news about a Bolaño novel

January 28, 2016 · Leave a Comment

Greetings from Lau! I hope you have been coping with the snow ok. Very, very, gradually the city is showing signs of improvement, and I look forward to when I won’t need my giant boots again. I grew up in central Illinois and got my BA in Minneapolis-St. Paul, so this weather isn’t completely foreign to me, but I’m definitely not used to it anymore, either!

First, let me know about any of your research needs and, if you teach, please let me know if you need any kind of library instruction. I welcome individual meetings (in-person or via the chat on my research guides), group meetings for a specific project, e-mail, in-class instruction, or really any way that is the most convenient for you. I have begun teleworking on Mondays, but thanks to technology, I can certainly be in touch! If, however, you do need me to come in on Monday for a class or some other kind of presentation, I can simply change my telework day to accommodate this.

Second, I just read that Roberto Bolaño’s last novel, 2666, is being adapted into a play at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. It will be quite interesting to see how this turns out, although I am hopeful as the Goodman does great work. We have a fair amount about Bolaño and his work in Lauinger, and there always seems to be more. In 2013, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona held an exhibition based on his archives, and much of its website is still active. And yes, we have the exhibition catalog right here in Lau!

Have a great semester. When I was in school, I often found the spring semester to be more grueling than the fall one; the end is in sight but there’s still a bit a hurdle to go. Let me know if there’s any way the library can make your life a little easier!
