"J.D. Salinger"

(Oct. 18-Jan. 19) — The New York Public Library presents a rare glimpse into the life and work of author J.D. Salinger with an exhibition of manuscripts, letters, photographs, books and personal effects drawn exclusively from Salinger's archive. This will be the first time these items — on loan from the J.D. Salinger Literary Trust — have ever been shared with the public.

The exhibition is organized by Salinger's son Matt Salinger and widow Colleen Salinger with Declan Kiely, Director of Special Collections and Exhibitions at The New York Public Library. The free exhibition coincides with the centennial of J.D. Salinger's birth and will feature more than 200 items spanning his life (1919-2010).
