Special Events for Theological Libraries Month

Andover-Harvard Library is pleased to announce two special public presentations as part of its celebration of Theological Libraries Month

On Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 3 - 4pm, acclaimed author Sara Day will talk about her new book, Coded Letters, Concealed Love (New Academia Publishing, 2014), which uncovers the love affair of Harriet Freeman and the Rev. Edward Everett Hale that accompanied the collaboration of these two remarkable intellectuals and activists. Their special relationship, grounded in their shared passion for Unitarianism, outdoor life, natural history, and travel, endured for 25 years until Hale's death in 1909. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.

On Thursday, October 30, 2014, noon – 1pm, Armin Siedlecki, Head of Cataloging at Pitts Theology Library of Emory University, will give a talk on “Women Printers in Early Modern Europe.” A light lunch will be provided.

Both events will take place in the Rabinowitz Room, Andover-Harvard Theological Library, 45 Francis Avenue.

Established by the American Theological Library Association, Theological Libraries Month highlights the vital role libraries and librarians play in theological education.
