MONTREAL — The manual typewriter, plush armchair and pine wood table that Mordecai Richler wrote on, along with the pictures, mementos and hundreds of books that he surrounded himself with, have been enshrined at Concordia University. The Mordecai Richler Reading Room, on the sixth floor of the J.W. McConnell Building where the English department is located, was officially opened recently in the presence of the writer’s widow, Florence, and son Jacob.
