Preservation Services has restored and digitized a series of audio recordings from lectures and readings given by William Faulkner while at the University of Virginia. Listen to the audio >
Recently, an endangered collection of unique audio recordings featuring author William Faulkner was on the verge of irreversible deterioration—until Preservation Services came to the rescue.
The forty-five reels of tape conserved by Preservation include Faulkner reciting brief works, such as "The Town" and "Spotted Horses," or sections of his novels, such as The Sound and the Fury.
