Burland books go to College
Bermuda College will today receive the entire collection of Brian Burlands literary works at a special handover ceremony at the College Library.
The College was selected as recipient of the works by family members of Mr Burland who died in 2010.
Mr Burland authored eight published books, and is probably Bermudas most widely acclaimed author.
His first published work was the 1964 St Nicholas and the Tub, an illustrated childrens book, followed by A Fall from Aloft in 1968. A Few Flowers for St George, in 1970 followed and a year later his Undertow was published.
In 1973, what was probably his best known work The Sailor and the Fox was published. And another novel, Love is a Durable Fire came out in 1985.
Family and friends of Mr Burland will be in attendance at todays handover ceremony.
