Lawrence Tech is hosting an exhibit, "Literary Masterpieces: Sacred and Secular" from January 12-28, 2016. This includes approximately 25 rare books and manuscripts from the Remnant Trust Collection, headquartered at Texas Tech University. This exhibition is a diverse representation of texts focusing on the quest for human freedom and dignity. See examples of such titles as the Magna Carta (1576 printing), major religious texts, Machiavelli's The Prince, or Gallileo's Della Scienza Mechanica. Visitors are invited to examine and touch these masterworks, and a docent will be present to discuss the significance of each item. In addition to the public hours noted in the attachment, there are several panel discussions scheduled that highlight the thoughts of local scholars, and these are also open to the public.
The exhibit will be in the Lawrence Tech University Gallery in the UTLC, located off the Ten Mile Rd. entrance, west of Evergreen and the M-10 Lodge Freeway (Northwestern Highway). There is free parking on the campus.
