A Lecture Dressed Up Like A Disscussion In The Guise Of A Conversation: Wendell Berry And The 2012/13 Avenali Lecture

Wendell Berry, an honorable member of the Graduate Services Modern Authors Collection (as well as conservationist, farmer, essayist, novelist, and poet), will be giving the 2011-2012 Avenali Lecture this Wednesay night (October 31st) at 4pm in Zellerbach Hall. This lecture is titled “An Agro-Ethical Aesthetic: A Conversation With Wendell Berry,” which means it will not really be a lecture at all, but a conversation between Wendell Berry and some of UC Berkeley’s esteemed faculty members. This panel discussion–or if you prefer, panel conversation–will include Michael Pollan from the Graduate School Of Journalism, Robert Hass from the English Department, Miguel Altieri from the Environmental Science, Policy, and Management Department, and Anne-Lise Francois from the English and Comparative Literature Departments. What’s more, it will be Halloween too! We already know the lecure will be dressed up like a disscussion in the guise of a conversation, but what will everyone on the panel’s costumes be? I wonder. I am sure they will be splendid though.What’s more, the Avenali Lecture is not just for Halloween, as All Saint’s Day gets in on some of this Avenali action too. On Thursday (November 1st), there will be a reading and a disscussion by and with Wendell Berry at 6pm in the Berkeley Art Museum Theater located at 2621 Durant Avenue.

These events are sponsered by the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities at UC Berkeley. They are ticketed events, and tickets will be available at the event venues one hour before each event. One ticket per person.

Below are a few of the many books written by Wendell Berry in the Graduate Services Collection (We have 68!). Come read a few in anticipation of this great occasion. Enjoy.

Candy Corn: The Worst Of Both Worlds: New Books In Graduate Services In October

A bountiful supply of books was delievered throughout October to Graduate Services. It was like Trick or Treat without the trick option at least a few days each week. Books coming in like candy (though with some substance behind them; I guess they’d be more like granola then; Or a Power Bar), and the only costume I had to wear was myself.  Isn’t October great. And now let’s count the stash: two Heideggers, five Carol Oates, four Yeats, a few Edmund Wilsons, an Agamben, Cather, Connelly, Conrad, Falci, Hunt, Nabokov, Landreth, Spender, Stovall, Wharton, Wolfe, Wright, Woolf, and a Zizek all in one month. My mind teeth are already sore just thinking about them.  Thank goodness there was no Candy Corn this year. Enjoy.

What Is Not But Could Be If: New Books In Graduate Services In September

If a book falls off a shelf in Graduate Services and no one is around to see it, does it scream in pain and scuffle around the room in a panic? I say yes, providing the shelf is high enough and the book is not too damaged from the fall. Otherwise, it probably just lies there waiting to be picked up and returned to its place on the shelf, I suspect. Below are some books that came into Graduate Services this September that should be seen. Just to make sure they don’t fall off the shelf when no one’s around. Enjoy.

Look out (for what’s) below. New books and new adventures in Graduate Services. Take a tour of Vietnam with Steinbeck, or a tour of French Philosophy with Badiou.

Bon voyage.

You’ve Got Mail: New Books In Graduate Services In June

You can say that four books is not a lot to get in a month. But what if two of those books were collections of letters? Would you still say that? I mean imagine how much mail this would be if each one of the letters in these two books arrived at your door. You’d think you were a teen pop star, or at least some sad public figure who survived a tragedy and ended up on a day time television talk show. Either way lots of mail would be coming your way and you would probably have your own mail room section at the local post office. That’s the way I like to think about these four books: two books plus the condensed intensity of years of mail service. Enjoy.
