An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.” – J.D. Salinger
From now until January 19, 2020, the New York Public Library is home to a new exhibition featuring manuscripts, letters, photographs, books, and other artifacts taken directly from J.D. Salinger’s archive.
Organized by Salinger’s son, Matt, and his widow, Colleen, these items are on loan from the J.D Salinger Literary Trust and this is the first time they have been shared with the public.
Some of the items in the exhibition include the original typescript of The Cather in the Rye, family photographs from Salinger’s childhood, a bookcase from his bedroom, and more.
The exhibition is free to the public and will be available until January 19, 2020 in the Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Gallery at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Check it out before it’s gone!
