Event description

Description

In 2013, Concordia University acquired Mordecai Richler’s personal library, related papers, and materials from the Richler estate. The Richler Library collection consists of over 5500 monographs, many annotated in Richler’s hand, thousands of pages of typescript, periodicals, personal agendas, correspondence, financial documents, photographs, prints and drawings, newspaper clippings, audio recordings, ephemera, personal documents, and realia. The materials are housed in The Richler Reading Rooms, a designated university departmental space, and are available for flexible use, manipulation and creative intervention.

As part of the Holiday Pop-up Book Fair programming organized by AELAQ (The Association of English-language Publishers of Quebec) and Quebec Writers' Federation (QWF), we are pleased to offer tours of the Richler Library Collection. The tour will include an explanation of the contents of the collection, presentation of unique items of interest, and discussion of some of the present uses of the collection for teaching and research. Tours will be run by graduate research assistants from Concordia’s department of English.
