?Thanks so much for this, Carey! Makes me want to dip into the 1930s again.

Subject: [Msa-discuss] Left Bank Book Club
I've just learned that Ohio University houses a nearly complete archive of the Left Book Club (founded by Victor Gollancz in 1936, with books by Orwell among others) that might be of interest to MSA scholars. One of my students has curated a nice exhibit on it, which is detailed below; the other link explains the contents of the archive.
Here is the web page: https://www.library.ohiou.edu/about/collections/archives-special-collections/rare-books/the-left-book-club-1936-1948/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.library.ohiou.edu%2Fabout%2Fcollections%2Farchives-special-collections%2Frare-books%2Fthe-left-book-club-1936-1948%2F&data=01%7C01%7Cgrogers%40pitt.edu%7C80ca948cfe374a6f76c508d4bd90b33a%7C9ef9f489e0a04eeb87cc3a526112fd0d%7C1&sdata=U0Uk7YuOfAiQwhJ6PLhwdcUu%2Ft%2BvtpKomLk5SWsXv%2Bc%3D&reserved=0>
