200 Years of George Eliot
Please join us for wine and light hors d’oeuvres and a special exhibit of books from our George Eliot collection, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of her birth. The exhibit will feature first editions of Eliot’s novels, including Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss, and Middlemarch, along with other materials from our extensive 19th-century literature collection.
A special Eliot keepsake, printed on the ZSR Letterpress by Craig Fansler, Preservation Librarian, will be available for visitors to take home. Guests will also be welcome to enjoy the ongoing exhibit, “50 Years of Caged Bird: An Exhibit from Dr. Maya Angelou’s Film & Theater Collection.”
