In February, Anne Steptoe, an MBA candidate at the Fuqua School of Business, submitted an entry to Duke Libraries’ 2015 Andrew T. Nadell Book Collectors Contest. Her collection, “Look Homeward: A Girl’s Journey Homeward through Twentieth Century Southern Literature,” impressed the judges and tied for first place in the graduate division of the contest.
Anne went on to enter her collection in the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest, where she received the special essay-bibliography prize in recognition of her superb accompanying essay and annotated bibliography. There will be an award ceremony October 16th at the Library of Congress to celebrate Anne and the other winners. Congratulations from all of us at the Libraries!
