NCB Adult Book Discussion In-Person

The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict

In her twenties, Belle da Costa Greene is hired by J. Pierpont Morgan to curate a collection of rare manuscripts, books, and artwork for his newly built library. Belle becomes a fixture on the New York society scene and one of the most powerful people in the art and book world, known for her impeccable taste and shrewd negotiating as she helps build a world-class collection. But Belle has a secret she must protect at all costs. She is the daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard, well-known advocate for equality. This is the story of an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and the lengths she must go to for the protection of her family.
