It’s the first major exhibition celebrating the life and work of the celebrated author, and it will feature approximately 100 items from Butler’s literary
archive, which came to The Huntington in 2008. The exhibition will be on view April 8–Aug. 7, 2017, in the West
Hall of the Library.
For a preview of the show (and a few more sneak peek images), head to VERSO!
