Reading in Quarantine? What are you reading? What do you think about what you're reading? Want to share your thoughts / feelings / stories / photos about a book or books? Favorite authors? How are you adapting to your new stay-at-home literary lifestyle? Or is your new lifestyle basically the same as your previous?

With the help of Fine Books & Collections Magazine, we are creating an online archive where you can share how books are helping you get through this challenging period. Your brief comments – or long essays – will be archived at the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress. Add photos if you wish.

Take part in a virtual walk-through of the Morgan's exhibition devoted to the extraordinary figure Alfred Jarry (1873–1907). Sheelagh Bevan, Andrew W. Mellon Associate Curator in Printed Books & Bindings, will guide viewers through the installation and take a close look at many of the books, manuscripts, and works of visual art that speak to Jarry's singular imagination and legacy.

[Allan Stypeck, owner of Second Story Books, undertook the appraisal of Jarry items contributed to the Morgan Museum from the Robert J. and Linda Klieger Stillman collection]
