About the Book

THE PERSONAL LIBRARIAN tells the little-known and incredibly timely story of Belle da Costa Greene. Hired by J.P. Morgan in 1905 to serve as his personal librarian, and creator of the Morgan Library’s famous manuscript collection, she became one of the most powerful people in the art world, and one of history’s most prominent librarians. But Belle was hiding a secret: she was shielding her Black identity and “passing” for white. The book is a wonder, highlighting a forgotten figure from the past while also putting front-and-center the ongoing discussion about what it means to be Black in America.
