The Author as Collector
Webster Library, 2nd floor
Drawing from the collection of Mordecai Richler’s personal Library, this exhibition showcases six sides of the author: Richler as a labouring writer and man of letters, community member, celebrity, political gadfly, autodidact, sportsman, husband and father.
Curated by Jennifer Breaux, Jason Camlot, Alisha Dukelow, Sean Gallagher, Kaitlynn McCuaig, Chalsley Taylor, and Max Stein (digital curator), this exhibition provides viewers with the unique opportunity to engage with the objects Richler surrounded himself with while he lived and wrote.
These objects, as well as many others, can normally be found in the collection of the Mordecai Richler Reading Room, located on the 6th floor of the J. W. McConnell Building (LB).
