Pop-Up Holiday Book Shop

Books make the perfect holiday gifts! Looking for informed recommendations? Join Athenæum librarians Dani Crickman, Carolle Morini, Will Evans, and Mary Warnement for a review of this season’s best books. Enjoy tea, cocoa, and cookies while you shop for your holiday gifts. Gift wrapping will be available.

Are you curious to know what books Boston Athenæum authors and members from the past would have recommended? Make an appointment in the Vershbow Rare Books Reading Room to see what books members checked out from 1827 to 1960 as recorded in the Books Borrowed ledgers. Or visit the Boston Athenæum’s Archive page to view the charging records of authors Louisa May Alcott and Henry Archibald Grimke.
