A Very Sad Loss

People who read this blog will already be all too aware of the recent death of Prof. Lydia Wevers on September 4th.  One of the most generous and insightful and determined book historians any of us is ever likely to encounter.

To honour Prof. Wevers and to console ourselves, the Centre offers this link to some extracts from Lydia’s 2004 bibliomemoir, On Reading, reprinted in The Spinoff this week.

And thanks for Jackie McMillan for drawing these moving extracts to our attention.
