No Picture Could Be More Lovely: Ada Shepard Exhibit (Main)

"No Picture Could Be More Lovely":  Ada Shepard with the Hawthornes in Florence, 1858

April 6 - June 28, 2018

The forthcoming exhibition features the sketchbooks and letters of Ada Shepard, a well-educated, perceptive young woman who served as governess to the children of Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne while they were in Europe between 1857 and 1859, with the focus on the family's sojourn in Florence in 1858. Ada’s letters, in particular, provide a window into a young American woman’s experiences in mid-19th century Europe.

Join us for the grand opening reception on Friday, April 6, 2018, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the Concord Free Public Library Rotunda.

A lecture by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Megan Marshall, biographer of the Peabody sisters, Margaret Fuller, and Elizabeth Bishop, will be followed by elegant refreshments and an opportunity to view the exhibition.

Please R.S.V.P. by April 2 to conevents@minlib.net or 978-318-3355.

Information about the exhibition will be updated on the library’s website at www.concordlibrary.org.
