Lenten Series | Wednesdays in Lent starting at 6:15 PM
Join us for a day trip to the Morgan Library & Museum plus Evensong with the St. Thomas men/boys choir on Sunday, March 20. All are welcome to join us. Feel free to invite a friend!
** PURCHASE YOUR JITNEY & MORGAN LIBRARY TICKETS ONLINE SOON TO ENSURE AVAILABILITY. **
The trip was inspired by the most recent book read by the St. John’s Book Club: The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray. The book recounts the fascinating life of Belle da Costa Greene, the Morgan’s First Librarian and long-time Director. Belle da Costa Greene (1879–1950) was one of the most prominent librarians in American history. She ran the Morgan Library for forty-three years—initially as the private librarian of J. Pierpont Morgan and then his son, Jack, and later as the inaugural director of the Pierpont Morgan Library (now the Morgan Library & Museum). Not only did Greene build one of the most important collections of rare books and manuscripts in the United States, but she also transformed an exclusive private collection into a major public resource, originating the robust program of exhibitions, lectures, publications, and research services that continues today.
