We’re almost a year into the podcasting phenomenon, and the success of the medium has been more than most people had predicted. Later on this month, we’ll produce a year-in-review podcast that will sum up our thoughts on 2005 and give a preview of what we hope to accomplish in 2006.
In the meantime, though, we’d like to introduce Brad Richard, a motivational speaker and author who has turned to this new medium to reach new audiences. Brad is producing a talk show through Odeo, one of the many podcast sites out there. He’s aiming to produce a weekly program to help people move ahead with their lives by confronting their fears.
In the weeks to come, Brad will be using the CPN studio to produce an installment or two for us. We’re excited to be working with him in the future, and hope to be speaking with you about podcasting in the coming year.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the death of Charlotte Bronte, the author who gave millions of school children something to read with the publication of Jane Eyre. The novel is one of the most common in the English language, and the Rare Book School is honoring Bronte with a look at the ubiquitous nature of this classic in a special exhibit in the Rotunda called Eyre Apparent, which features a look at the depth at which the novel has penetrated pop culture, and to show that there’s much more to a book than its text.
Barbara Heritage is curator of collections at the Rare Book School. I met her recently at Alderman Library while she was putting the exhibit together and asked her to describe a shelf containing much in the way of Eyre paraphrenalia.
