Classics Library's "Book of the Month"
The “Book of the Month” is a feature of the Classics Library by which we highlight individual treasures among our extensive and world-renowned collections. Each month’s book is displayed physically in the Library’s main Reading Room and online via a Facebook post written by one of our graduate students, Ph.D. candidate Angelica Wisenbarger. The posts, in addition to displaying images of each book, narrate, with passion and considerable wit, its history, researched by Ms. Wisenbarger.
To view the Facebook posts, please click on the book titles for each month below.
