October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join rare books and manuscript dealer, Marsha Malinowski, and discover the fascinating world of rare book collecting. As the former Senior Vice President in charge of books and manuscripts at Sotheby’s, Malinowski has been involved with some of the most extraordinary sales of manuscripts in auction history. From the sale of Magna Carta for over $21 million to being in charge of the groundbreaking sale of baseball memorabilia from the collection of Barry Halper, which fetched in excess of $24 million, Malinowski’s expertise and range of experience is unparalleled. Single handedly, she carved out the collecting field of artists’ letters, bringing to market stunning collections, including letters by Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Magritte, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Giacometti to name just a few. From history to literature––a letter by Catherine of Aragon while imprisoned to a Sherlock Holmes manuscript story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; from science to music––Einstein’s Theory of Relativity manuscript to a cache of Chopin letters, Malinowski’s depth of knowledge in all fields of manuscript collecting is second to none.

Free and open to the public. Sherry and light refreshments served. Registration recommended.
