Special Happy Hour/Exhibition Opening: Wanderlust: Your Favorite Travel Books

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM | Members’ Room/Peluso Family Exhibition Gallery for members and guests | free of charge | no registration required

Wish you were here - or perhaps you wish you were there. Did we catch you skimming through a dog-eared Baedeker that belonged to your great-uncle Oscar? Or E.M. Forster’s A Room with a View, the first book that made you want to go abroad? Maybe you’re now reading Ludwig Bemelmans’ love letter to Paris, Madeline, to your grandchildren, or craving a pilgrimage through Vita Sackville-West’s Twelve Days in Persia or Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. It doesn’t matter if you read by the pool or wandering through the Coliseum: come share the love of travel and travel books with members and friends, and pick up a few new itineraries.

The Wanderlust exhibition is open to the public whenever the Library is open through December 31, 2019.
