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.
