Essay Contest Open to Duke Students Has Prize of $500 Gift Certificate to the Gothic Bookshop

The Friends of the Duke University Libraries and the Gothic Bookshop invite Duke undergraduate, graduate and professional students to enter the Lionel Stevenson Essay Contest, which has as its theme, "Book on Place/Book in Place": the relationship of book and place. The authors of the best undergraduate entry and the best graduate/professional student entry will each receive a $500 gift certificate to the Gothic Bookshop.

A book has the wonderful capacity to transport us to different places--whether defined as literal space or new states of awareness. A book may also be integrally connected in our minds with the place in which we read it. To enter the essay contest, reflect on this theme in an essay of no more than 2000 words. Essays (hard copy) must be delivered to 220 Perkins Library by 5:00pm on Friday, March 24, 2006. Winners will be announced on April 27 during the 2006 NC Festival of the Book, which will be held at Duke April 26-30.
