Repost: An Interview with Terry Belanger of the U.Va Rare Book School

Last year, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation selected a Charlottesville man as one of this year’s 25 MacArthur Fellows.

Terry Belanger is the founder and director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia. He was chosen for “raising the profile of the book as one of humankindGuv,!v,,us greatest inventions.”
Shortly afterwards, Sean Tubbs took an elevator ride to the sub-basement of Alderman Library to speak with Belanger about the school.

This podcast concludes with music from Magnatune. The track is Daniel Berkman’s “Folkways” off of the album Calabashmoon.
Soundscape fans may be intrigued by MacArthur’s selection of Emily Thompson, an aural historian.
