Event—Events for Donors

Donor Exhibition Tour

In recognition of their leadership support of the Newberry Library, President’s Fellows, Newberry Associates at the Scholars level and above, and members of Next Chapter are invited to an exclusive tour of our latest exhibition, A Show of Hands: Handwriting in the Age of Print.

A Show of Hands focuses on people, cultures, and technology to illustrate how handwriting has been taught, reproduced, and reimagined over the past five hundred years. Displaying a range of books and manuscripts from the Newberry’s collection, the exhibition makes the role of handwriting in the age of print newly legible.

Eligible donors will receive an invitation to this event. Learn more about the benefits of supporting the Newberry.
