Linda Salem, librarian for the Edward Gorey Personal Library at SDSU, will speak on Edward Gorey and his influences. Of her presentation she write, "What is inspiration? For authors like Edward Gorey, inspiration came from the books he read and consulted over a lifetime. In this session, meet with the librarian of the Edward Gorey Personal Library collection and take a look at how the books Gorey collected show up in many ways in the books he created. Maybe this will evolve into a discussion of how ‘what is around’ artists might shape the form of their creative work. Gorey’s illustrated work was informed by so very many sources found in his library about nonsense, surrealism, criminology, film, theater, neo-Victorianism, etc…. This will be a good way for artists to learn more about how others use sources and background to inform their work."
