The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray
New York Times bestselling author Marie Benedict and acclaimed author Victoria Christopher Murray bring to life the remarkable, little-known story of Belle da Costa Greene, J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian–who became one of the most powerful women in New York despite the dangerous secret she kept in order to make her dreams come true.
The Personal Librarian tells the story of an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and shares the lengths to which she must go — for the protection of her family and her legacy — to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.
