We discussed "Personal Librarian" by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murrary. In her twenties, Belle de Costa Greene is hired by J. P. Morgan to curate a collection of manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built Pierpont Morgan Library. Belle becomes a fixture in New York City society, but she must also hide her true identity and pass as white to leave a lasting legacy that enriched our nation.
Our next book club event will be September 6th. See our KRVC page.
