Flann O’Brien exhibit at Burns Library

The John J. Burns Library at Boston College is highlighting Irish novelist, playwright, and satirist Flann O’Brien in an exhibit on display now through June 8. “Genius of Genre: The Pen Names and Personas of Flann O’Brien” will examine O’Brien, [the pseudonym of Brian O’Nolan (1911-1966)], through the library’s unrivaled collection of the writer’s papers and personal library. The Burns collection comprises 30 boxes of material, plus a number of artifacts, including a hat, briefcase, wallet, passport, and Underwood typewriter. Students from BC faculty member Joseph Nugent’s course, “From Page to Pod: Making Literature Public,” are creating podcast and iBook projects to accompany the exhibit.  Read more in the BC Libraries newsletter.
