Wanderlust: Your Favorite Travel Books

Open to the public in the Peluso Family Exhibition Gallery September 19-December 31, 2019

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.
