In the next of our series introducing members of the team who you might meet at our sites or across the University, #DULibIntroducing welcomes Jennifer Knaggs, who you may meet during Extended Hours (evenings and weekends) in Bill Bryson Library. Do say hello!
On Wednesday 29th January, we welcomed acclaimed author and former Chancellor Bill Bryson back to the Library that bears his name. Bill hosted a Q and A in Small Island Coffee which, fittingly, was named after one of his books, Notes from a Small Island. He has been quoted as saying,
“I couldn’t believe that not once in twenty years had anyone said to me: ‘You’ve never been to Durham? Good God, man, you must go at once! Please – take my car’.”
We were delighted to welcome Bill back to the town he so loves!
