Voltaire’s Candide: a bibliographic laboratory (New York Public Library)

An audio recording of a discussion held at the NYPL on April 15, 2010, part of the NYPL’s celebration of the 250th anniversary of the publishing of Candide.

Some very forward thinking about libraries, library exhibitions, and connecting with our publics, both as cultural and educational institutions. I am inspired by the staff of the NYPL who turned this event into an amazing online experience – for those, like me, who could not see the exhibit.

Here’s a screen capture of the NYPL’s website devoted to Candide.
