Summer Reading Challenge
As the lovely weather kicks in, Cardigan Continuum London have decided that they would like to read something a bit lighter over the summer months, and so, rather than set a text, this time there is an open choice and you can read anything you like so long as it meets the following criteria;
- it must be fiction,
- it must have some connection with archives or records or archival themes
- it must in your view be good holiday reading.
Once you have made up your mind what you are going to read, why not let everyone know by adding a comment below and, for those of you who do not know where to start, the following article by Arlene Schmuland ‘The Archival Image in Fiction: An Analysis and Annotated Bibliography‘ (American Archivist 62:1 1999) has a list of 128 to choose from.
Given that everyone will be on holiday reading, there will be no face to face meeting until the autumn, but we will have a Twitter chat on 26 August to discuss what we think of our choices. See you then and have a good summer.
