“More than kisses letters mingle souls” (John Donne). There’s something intensely personal, honest and human about writing to someone.

For September's Tuesday Treasure, we asked the Special Collections team; 'What's your favourite letter in the collections?' Join us to discover what they selected and see letters that reveal stories of heroism, love, politics, social change and friendship, not forgetting some early sketches of a squirrel who later became a beloved character of children's literature. 

Drop in any time between 12 noon and 2pm to take a look at these fascinating sources.
