    "A Memorial to my Family": The Story of the John Work Garrett Library at Evergreen
    September 27, 2017  |  6:30 PM8:30 PM
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Free by advance registration only Purchase Tickets

    Seating is extremely limited and advance registration is required: online through Eventbrite or by calling 410.516.0341.

    In his bequest to Johns Hopkins University, John Work Garrett described his library as "a memorial to my family," recalling the ubiquity of books, and the love of book collecting, that had shaped two generations of the Garrett family at Evergreen. Join Renaissance scholar and rare book curator Earle Havens, Ph.D., for an illustrated talk that will highlight his new and extensive research on the John Work Garrett Library—one of the truly great private rare book and manuscripts collections of late 19th- and early 20th-century America. Havens is the Nancy H. Hall Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at the Johns Hopkins Sheridan Libraries and a contributing author of Evergreen: The Garrett Family, Collectors and Connoisseurs (JHU Press, 2017). A reception will follow the talk and copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
