About the event
Come learn about Stephen Mather contemporary Belle da Costa Greene! While Mather was conserving land and building the national parks system, Greene was conserving rare books and manuscripts, building a collection for American financier J. Pierpont Morgan. Together we will read Marie Benedict's The Personal Librarian, based on da Costa Greene's fascinating life and important work as director of what is today the Morgan Library. Paperback comes out June 7th! Please buy local! Books available at Barrett Bookstore and Elm Street Books.
This discussion will be led by our in-house literary guru Samantha Gault!
