The third in our new Saturday morning talks series, this week we take a look at a unique collection of Science Fiction items from the University of Leeds Library.

To coincide with our new display, Dreams of a Low Carbon Future (10 February- 31 March 2014), this discussion will highlight works from the Science Fiction Collection, held in the Library's Special Collections.

There will be opportunity to see early pulp magazines, illustrated volumes and rare editions of highly influential works of SF literature. Come along to learn more about these futures past and the history of the collections. A short presentation will be followed by questions and discussion.
