Endpapers by Jennifer Savran Kelly

Join us for a special Preservation Week book club with guest host Danielle Creech, Head of Preservation, Processing, and Exhibitions. We will discuss Endpapers by Jennifer Savran Kelly.

One day at work, conservation technician Dawn discovers something hidden under the endpapers of an old book: the torn-off cover of a lesbian pulp novel from the 1950s, with an illustration of a woman looking into a mirror and seeing a man’s face. Even more intriguing is the queer love letter written on the back. Dawn becomes obsessed with tracking down the author of the letter, convinced the mysterious writer can help her find her place in the world. 

Book club will begin with a presentation on the day in the life of a conservator, followed by a discussion of the book.
