Today’s top book news item:
In a bit of a twist, the archives of the late, great crime novelist Elmore Leonard have come to rest at the University of South Carolina, the school announced Wednesday. Leonard, long known as the “Dickens of Detroit,” chose Columbia, S.C., over the Motor City to house his collection after visiting the school last year, just months before his passing.
 It was Leonard’s tour of the university’s literary archives — a walk among the original manuscripts of writers such as Ernest Hemingway and George V. Higgins — that persuaded him. And the choice came quickly: According to his son, Leonard made his decision on the flight home to Detroit.
