EXHIBIT | "To Travel is to Live" 

Literature is non-tactile. Other than turning pages, it is an almost purely cognitive exercise. Kinetic learners may be pleased to hear of an opportunity to approach literature in a hands-on way. University of Rochester is hosting an ongoing exhibit with author and English professor Joanna Scott featuring many of the letters, diaries, and pictures that moved her to write her most recent novel: "DePotter's Grand Tour." Scott's book is a fictionalized foray into the life of her great-great grandfather, especially of his obsession with artifact collection and dreams of museum prestige. It is therefore supremely fitting that his personal artifacts be displayed, with related excerpts from Grand Tour. The fictional Armand DePotter would be jealous of his real life inspiration for achieving what he never could: an exhibit in his honor.

"To Travel is to Live" will be displayed at Rush Rhees Library, Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation (Room 225) at the University of Rochester until May 3. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Free. library.rochester.edu; us.macmillan.com/depottersgrandtour.
