David Lodge and the new Main Library
A specially commissioned portrait of David Lodge, Emeritus Professor of English Literature and eminent novelist, will be unveiled in the new Main Library beside an inspirational quote from his novel Small World. Professor Lodge has an enduring connection with the University of Birmingham and has long been involved in the New Library Project. A plaque featuring the same quote was positioned on the roof of the new Main Library during the topping out ceremony in June last year.
The unveiling ceremony will take place in the Library Atrium at 18:30 on Wednesday 23 November.
