Morgan Library...




I love diaries and journals. Spaces dedicated to thought, reflection, dreams, concerns and ideas, books that hold memories or act as company or ways of passing time. It is rare to see a collection of them assembled together. So my thanks to my notes from the field blog for linking to the a wonderful dairy exhibition which is on currently at The Morgan Library, titled The Diary: Three Centuries of Private Lives. The exhibition includes diaries by Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Charlotte Bronte, John Steinback, Henry David Thoreau and Tennessee Williams, among others. There is an online exhibition for those of us who can not make it to New York and the New York Times has a slide show of some images from the exhibition.
