Join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity exclusively for Simmons alumnae/i to view and learn about the manuscripts from the curatorial experts.  Lisa Fagin Davis, exhibit curator, Simmons Library and Information Science adjunct faculty member and Executive Director of the Medieval Academy of America will be with us to guide us through the history and majesty of the books at each of the three venues.

Our tour and lecture series will take place over three months and in three venues.  We start in October with the oldest manuscripts in the collection on exhibit at Harvard’s Houghton Library, move on to the McMullen Museum at Boston College in November and conclude in December with a tour at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, followed by High Tea at Simmons College.  Join us for one, two or all three tours.  

Speakers for From Church to Cloister are Lisa Fagin Davis, Medieval Academy of America and William Stoneman, Houghton Library.
