Last week of Evolving English
Guerrila: the free newspaper of the streets [cup.653.a.20]
I popped into the Library on Sunday for a last proper look at the Evolving English exhibition (which closes at the end of the week). As well as Beowulf, the King James Bible, and Viz, there are also a selection of US items. I've mentioned the Milk and Honey Route before, but there's also a Strunk and White, and, strikingly, Guerilla: the free newspaper of the streets (there are others, if you want to make a game of it). I was particularly pleased to see the latter, as it was one of the first things that I acquired for our collections when I moved to this post. Not so much a call for evolution, as revolution, there's a bit more about this radical publication on the learning team's site, 'Dreamers and Dissenters'.
You can also 'Map your Voice' on the website. I think that they are still after American voices.
