Presenter: Steve Volpini

The Personal Librarian tells the story of Belle da Costa Greene, a brilliant woman who became indispensable to J.P. Morgan as he built a library of rare books and artwork. But she had a secret. She was a black woman passing as white. This fascinating and moving novel is a story of great accomplishment and success achieved at great personal cost.
