Some good news for work.  We will be lending the National Library of Scotland the manuscripts of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and The Driver’s Seat for their Centenary exhibit, “The International Style of Muriel Spark” on display from 8 December 2017 to 13 May 2018.

There is a discussion of this in an interview on BBC Scotland yesterday, Click on the link and fast forward to 1:05 to hear the interview.

The Department of Special Collections, McFarlin Library, The University of Tulsa holds 42.5 linear feet (about 14 shelves) of Dame Muriel Spark’s manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, etc.  The National Library of Scotland has considerably more.  We are delighted that they included us in this exhibit.
