The latest issue of LibFOCUS focuses on renovations in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, the recently digitized Westland TV series in the Halleran collection, and puts a Library branch in the spotlight with a “Guess Where?” feature. 

Andrew Kaufman, Camille Martin and Barry Webster will be the last authors to read in the final Robson Reading Series event on Thursday, March 14. The event will feature the authors reading from their books, discussion and a chance for guests to have their books autographed. 

UBC Bookstore and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre made the difficult decision to conclude the Robson Reading Series at the end of March 2013. This step was taken in light of the 2012 closure of UBC Library’s Robson Square branch, and the coming closure of the UBC Bookstore at Robson Square.

For more than 10 years, the Robson Reading Series has helped the University share knowledge and engage communities at UBC and beyond. The series featured seasoned and debut writers reading from their works in various genres, and gave them a platform to discuss their works with the audience in a warm and welcoming environment – indeed, our motto has been “live literature and cozy conversation.”
