Annual Esmond Harmsworth Lecture: C.K. Williams
The 2010 Esmond Harmsworth Letter in American Arts and Letters will be given at the RAI next week by the major American poet C.K. Williams. The VHL has bought a volume of Williams's collected poems, as well as his two most recent works, Repair (which won the Pulitzer Prize) and The Singing. These books are all currently on display on the ground floor in the library, just outside the group study room, for anyone interested in taking a look before the lecture.
For more information on the lecture, visit the RAI website. Please note that places at the lecture are limited and must be reserved in advance.
The Vere Harmsworth Library is the University of Oxford's main research library for US Studies. Located in the Rothermere American Institute, our collection focuses predominantly on the history (social, political and economic) of the United States from Colonial times to the present day.
