Washington and Lee University’s renowned Mock Convention officially begins in only a matter of hours and continues through Sunday. (For more information, see the official website.)
A number of our guest speakers are the authors of published books and many of those volumes are available in W&L’s Leyburn Library. To see what we have, check out this (partial) list of speakers:
- Trevor Noah
- Jim Acosta (volume on order)
- Nadine Strossen (another on order)
- Donna Brazile (another on order)
The University Library also holds a treasure-trove of Mock Con historical materials — both print and multi-media — in its Special Collections holdings. A significant number of items are accessible online in our Digital Archive, while much more is physically available in its original form within Leyburn’s Special Collections area.
