The Brautigan Library opens (USA)

The Brautigan Library opens (USA)"The Brautigan Library, a unique collection of 321 unpublished manuscripts written by authors from thirty one states, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, India, and Saudi Arabia, is a permanent, interactive exhibit in the Clark County Historical Museum, the former 1909 Andrew Carnegie library building in downtown Vancouver, Washington, USA. Inspired by a fictional library described by Richard Brautigan, a Washington native son (1935-1984), in his 1971 novel, The Abortion: An Historical Romance 1966, The Brautigan Library provides writers a public shelf for their unpublished manuscripts, free of restrictions on content or quality. The location of The Brautigan Library in Vancouver results from a partnership between the Creative Media & Digital Culture Program (CMDC) at Washington State University Vancouver, the Clark County Historical Museum, and the estate of the late author"
