Samuel Johnson that is. I've just done my first major exhibition
as a special collections curator at Houghton Library at Harvard, and I'd like to invite you for a Mefites-only tour of it and the library. It's Samuel Johnson's 300th birthday, and we have the world's best collection of his books and manuscripts. The tour will start at 3:30 in the Houghton lobby
, and we can go for beers afterward, probably at John Harvard's Brew House
a couple blocks away. Special guest star will be DiscourseMarker, visiting from Memphis on her fall break.
