I am writing on behalf of Mark Samuels Lasner, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Delaware Library.

A collector of Victorian books, manuscripts, and artworks, Mark has recently donated his collection to the University of Delaware Library. For more about the collection, please see https://library.udel.edu/msl-symposium-2017/exhibition/. To honor this gift, the library is putting on an exhibition “Victorian Passions: Stories from the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection," curated by Margaret D. Stetz, on view in the Special Collections Gallery, UD Library, from February 14-June 3, 2017.

The University is hosting a symposium, "Celebrating the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection: Rare Books and Manuscripts, Victorian Literature and Art,” on March 17-18, 2017. Elaine Showalter will be the keynote speaker  and participants include Mark Dimunation (Library of Congress), Barbara Heritage (Rare Book School, University of Virginia), Edward Maggs (Maggs Bros. Ltd., London), Joseph Bristow (UCLA), Linda K. Hughes (Texas Christian University), Margaretta S. Frederick (Delaware Art Museum), William S. Peterson (Emeritus, University of Maryland), David Taylor (UK historian and author), and Margaret D. Stetz (University of Delaware).

Mark thought that the members of the Modernist Studies Association would be interested in this event and exhibition, as many of the works on display are turn of the century works. If you agree, please spread this information in whatever way you feel is best.

When passing this information along, please indicate that the symposium is free and open to the public, but registration in advance is requested. More information, including online registration, will be available at https://library.udel.edu/msl-symposium-2017/. In addition, hotel arrangements have been made at:
Homewood Suites
640 S. College Ave., Newark, DE 19713
Anyone booking rooms should reference "Mark Samuels Lasner Symposium” for the room block and discount rate.

If you have any questions, please contact me at snystrom at udel.edu<mailto:snystrom at udel.edu>
