Dorothy Allison Papers Arrive at Duke

After a nearly twenty year period of considering this momentous decision, Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina and renowned activist in the LGBTQ community, has selected the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture, part of the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library at Duke University, to be the repository for her papers. Bingham Center and literary curatorial staff collaborated on the initial acquisition of nearly 60 boxes of Allison's papers, including drafts of her writings, extensive correspondence and research files, personal journals documenting her life and creative process, and more.
