From Emory’s Web site…

The first public exhibition of papers and other memorabilia from the extraordinary archives of Georgia-born Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker will open at Emory University Thursday, April 23.

The university will celebrate the opening with a daylong symposium on the author’s art and life Friday, April 24, followed by a public talk by Walker at 8 p.m. that evening.

“A Keeping of Records: The Art and Life of Alice Walker,” which opens in the Schatten Gallery of the Robert W. Woodruff Library, features 200 items drawn from one of the most complete archives in existence, says curator Rudolph P. Byrd, Goodrich C. White Professor of American Studies.
