Happy Mother’s Day

George MacDonald. At the Back of the North Wind.
Jessie Wilcox Smith, illustrator. Philadelphia 1919.
In this children’s classic about a child who is befriended by the North Wind, MacDonald describes motherly love: “When heart and head go together nothing can stand before them.”

At this time, when our hearts and heads are all that we can reach out with from a safe distance, we want to share an online token of appreciation with you: A preview of the Athenaeum’s next exhibition: Love for all Seasons.

We look forward to the day we can all see this exhibit in person. In the meantime, enjoy this PDF featuring expressions of love its in many forms. Click here to view a PDF of exhibit highlights.

As always, thank you to Elaine von Bruns for bringing beauty into our lives.

We miss you! Just stay home and read!
Jean Marie Procious and Carolyn McGuire
