Thursday, September 21, 2023
The Page Turners are reading 'The Personal Librarian' by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. Have you read it? Join us tonight in person or chime in next week on the KMUD Radio book club. This fascinating historical novel tells the story of Belle da Costa Greene, a Black American woman in the early 1900s who hid her identity to become the personal librarian for John Pierpont Morgan . She was the curator and collector for Morgan's famous manuscript and art collection and became well known for her impeccable taste and shrewd negotiation in the art world.
