Grace Notes: Writers Acknowledge the Library

Open to the public in The Assunta, Ignazio, Ada and Romano Peluso Exhibition Gallery
January 19 - February 22, 2023


Writing may seem like a lonely job. But our new short-term exhibition proves that writers are surrounded by encouragement and community - and that the old-fashioned thank-you note lives on even in this electronic age. Grace Notes shows words of thanks written to the Library by member authors past and present, from Barbara W. Tuchman and Francis Steegmuller to Phyllis Rose, Maggie Jackson, Laurence Bergreen, and many others.

Members and guests are cordially invited to join us for an informal opening reception for Grace Notes in the Members' Room Thursday, January 19, 5:30-7:00 PM. Drop in for light refreshments and a first glance at the new exhibition.


Grace Notes is generously supported by The Arthur F. and Alice E. Adams Foundation.
