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.
