In the insular and technical world of book restoration, there was only one word to describe what kind of shape the Albion College copy of the historic King James Bible was in. “Terrible; it was so damaged” said book conservator Marieka Kaye. “It was in the saddest shape imaginable,” said College archivist Justin Seidler. But in the Tuesday, October 6 Schleg Lecture, Kaye will unveil a restoration project few people, save for Kaye, thought was possible.
Albion College students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as all Albion community members, can have a full day of gameday fun—without the hassle of driving—by taking the train to the Britons' Saturday, October 10 football game at Kalamazoo College. Amtrak will make an extra stop in Kalamazoo right next to campus.
Albion—the College, the City and the surrounding community—will celebrate The Big Read throughout October. In addition to a number of book discussions on Ursula K. Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea, community businesses and groups are sponsoring events and activities related to The Big Read themes of community dialogue and youth empowerment.
Opened in 1975, The Ray Herrick Center for Speech and Theatre was "one of the reasons I was happy to come here," says professor emeritus Royal Ward. "The whole building was pretty state of the art," and having a main theatre and a black box "was fairly new back then." The venerable place still has plenty of life left in it and celebrates its 40th anniversary with its first production of the season, Shakespeare in Hollywood (left), running Thursday through Sunday, October 1-4.
