The attachment featuring Virginia Woolf's desk acquired by Duke didn't come through. Here's a link to a post on Blogging Woolf that features a photo of it: https://bloggingwoolf.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/desk-designed-by-virginia-woolf-part-of-newly-acquired-collection/

Good morning,

Thanks to those of you who got back to me with Austin restaurant recommendations for our IVWS dinner during MLA. I've contacted several of them, and they each want a minimum guarantee of anywhere from $2500-$3500! I have yet to locate a place that will simply hold a reservation and work out a per-person price. So, I'm asking again for recommendations of more casual places from anyone out there who knows Austin or knows someone who knows Austin.

Many thanks!

Hi all, Duke U acquired VW's writing desk (I believe designed by Vanessa)
and here is a scan of the one page piece with picture, entitled "Crazy
Smart" (which is a term duke uses for their students, but seems a poor
choice here one might say)

savoring the summer, leslie

*"Moreover, however interesting facts may be, they are an inferior form of
fiction, & gradually we become impatient of their weakness & diffuseness,
of their compromises & evasions, of the slovenly sentences which they make
for themselves, and are eager to revive ourselves with the greater
intensity & truth of fiction." *
