Join fellow art and book lovers for a discussion of the historical novel, The Personal Librarian, by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. A story of Bella de Costa Greene, the personal librarian of J.P. Morgan and the first director of the Morgan Library, The Personal Librarian tells the story of an extraordinary woman and the lengths she went as a Black American woman to hide her true identity and develop a world-class collection of art and books. Along with the discussion, Head Librarian, Alison Huftalen, will share a selection of special collection materials from the TMA Library.

This event is free, but space is limited and advanced registration is required.
