Pop-Up Summer Book Shop

Summer is here! What books will be in your beach bag? Join Athenæum librarians Dani Crickman, Kaelin Rasmussen, Graham Skinner, and Mary Warnement for a review of this season’s best books. Sip on iced tea and cookies while you shop for your perfect summer read.

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.
