In the Margins

May 5 through May 17, 2015

From May 5 to May 17 the Morgan Library & Museum will hold a special pop-up exhibition celebrating the acquisition of several unique books by authors connected to Britain’s Man Booker Prize. The show, titled In the Margins, features Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, the 2009 prize winner, Ian McEwan’s Amsterdam, winner in 1998, and Julian Barnes’s Metroland (1980). Mr. Barnes won the Man Booker Prize in 2011 for The Sense of an Ending. Each book has been enhanced by the author with annotations, personal letters, and other miscellaneous material. In a nod to the acclaimed Broadway production of Mantel’s novel, the Morgan’s annotated Wolf Hall is displayed alongside a 16th-century letter and medieval Book of Hours relating to the novel’s hero, Thomas Cromwell.
