Browse and adopt recent additions to the Folger Shakespeare Library during our annual benefit for the collection.
Guests can examine rare books, manuscripts, and works of art that have been added to the collection in the past year. Folger curators, conservators, and librarians are on hand to answer questions.
A buffet dinner is served, and guests can enjoy the winter exhibition, Decoding the Renaissance.
