Correspondence, letters, notes, messages, mail – there are many words for these materials that comprise the backbone of the archives. This year we will uplift the humble letters that pepper our collections. Join us on Friday, May 3 for the concluding event in the 2023-24 First Fridays series, presented by the Sherlock Holmes Collections.
Please register to attend in person or online. (Registration for the May event opens on March 1.) ASL interpreters will be present for all First Fridays events.
