"You Can't Go Home Again..." *


Exhibit Dates: June 8, 2010 - August, 2010

In his novel “You Can’t Go Home Again,” a book recently donated by Furman alumnus Robert Brooks (’61), Thomas Wolfe proposes that a person can never return home because no place ever remains unchanged by time. While this is true, texts such as books, letters, and diaries, in addition to visual materials ,can provide a window into the past, allowing us to glimpse the home that we left behind. This exhibit explores travel literature written about the Palmetto State, documenting the experiences of both natives and non-natives alike over the centuries through materials including books, diaries, maps, postcards and photographs.
