ATLANTA (AP) - Emory University has acquired the papers of sculptor, printmaker, novelist and poet Barbara Chase-Riboud.

The university says the collection is open to researchers at the Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library.

Chase-Riboud is set to visit Emory on Oct. 18 as part of a conference hosted by the school’s creative writing program. She’s set to give a presentation called “The Making of Art,” which is free and open to the public.

The papers in the collection include manuscripts, audiovisual materials, photographs and letters. They cover her entire life, from her birth in 1939 to today. Most of the collection is research for and drafts of her novels and poetry books, but there are also drafts of several unpublished works as are drawings and prep work for her sculptures.
