The Rosenbach’s collection holds some of the most beautiful and powerful lines ever written. We’ll look at and touch manuscripts and typescripts by Geoffry Chaucer, Walt Whitman, William Faulkner, and Toni Morrison. We’ll read aloud the work of some of the most creative minds to have put their thoughts down on paper, whether they used a quill, a pen, or a typewriter.
