Blogs at the Newberry

The Newberry has a variety of blogs, which reflect the diversity of our collections and our staff.

Book Fair Blog
Check in frequently to read the behind-the-scenes scoop on the Newberry's popular Book Fair. The blog is maintained by "Uncle Blogsy," otherwise known as Dan Crawford, Book Fair Manager.
Center for Renaissance Studies Blog
Welcome to the blog for the Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies! We post about center programs; items in the Newberry collections of special interest to those involved in medieval, Renaissance, or early modern studies; and profiles of scholars coming to the Newberry to present talks or pursue their research in those areas of study. We welcome your comments.
Dear Walter
Dear Reader, Please send your Missives and Queries regarding the Newberry, the Humanities, or this season of Modern Existence generally construed. I shall have my intern-amanuensis, Henry, submit my Reply with a haste that would shame Atalanta. I may be reached, through the ghostly conduit you call “EMAIL,” at, or through recourse to a special "WEBFORM." Sincerely yours, Walter L. Newberry
