“A Memorial to My Family”: The Story of the John Work Garrett Library at Evergreen
Sep 27 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Evergreen Museum & Library Homewood Campus 4545 North Charles Street 21210

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 great private rare book and manuscripts collections of late 19th- and early 20th-century America. Dr. Havens is the Nancy H. Hall Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at the 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.
