In conversation with Dr. Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress
Promotional partners: Texas Library Association and Friends of the Dallas Public Library

Recording available until August 3


The Personal Librarian tells the remarkable story of J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle da Costa Greene, the Black American woman who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy. Belle is an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, but she must go to great lengths to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.  A meticulously researched historic novel about the hidden history of the Morgan Library, The Personal Librarian has been widely praised as virtually impossible to put down.  
  


“An untold story that is simply amazing. It’s timely and impactful.” —Brenda Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Follow Your Heart

*Please note that books will ship starting June 29, when the novel is published.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Promotional Partner: Trinity River Audubon Center
Recording will be available through August 18


Australian author Charlotte McConaghy’s suspenseful, artfully rendered novels celebrate the beauty and resilience of humans and animals and their ability to adapt to a changing world.

The instant bestseller Migrations features researcher Franny Stone who arrives in Greenland with the singular purpose of following the last Arctic terns in the world on what might be their final migration to Antarctica. When her history begins to unspool-a passionate love affair, an absent family, a devastating crime-it becomes clear that she is chasing more than just the birds.   


McConaghy’s Once There Were Wolves is a pulse-pounding novel about a biologist charged with reintroducing 14 wolves to the Scottish Highlands in order to rewild the landscape and bring the forest back to life. Fueled by her love of nature, McConaghy crafts a strong lead character in Inti Flynn, who grapples with the harm she has witnessed humans inflict on both the wild and on each other.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Promotional Partner: Latino Cultural Center
All purchased tickets have been transferred to the rescheduled date. 

Selected by President Obama as the fifth inaugural poet in US history, Richard Blanco is the first Latino, immigrant, and gay person to serve in such a role. Blanco was born in Madrid to Cuban exile parents and raised in Miami, and the negotiation of cultural identity characterizes his award-winning poetry. His latest book of poems, How to Love a Country, both interrogates the American narrative, past and present, and celebrates the still unkept promise of its ideals.  


In celebration of the DMA’s exhibition My|gration in the Center for Creative Connections, Blanco will read his specially commissioned poem inspired by works of art in the DMA's collection.

In conversation with Roslyn Dawson Thompson, President and CEO, Texas Women’s Foundation
Promotional Partner: Texas Women’s Foundation
Recording available through October 4  


Liane Moriarty, the beloved bestselling author of Nine Perfect Strangers and Big Little Lies, returns with Apples Never Fall, a compelling mystery rife with humorous social commentary that weaves together thrilling suspense, the complexities of a long-term marriage, and the challenges of sibling rivalry. From the outside, the Delaneys appear to be an enviably contented family. Former tennis coaches Joy and Stan are parents to four adult children; however, when Joy disappears, her children are forced to reexamine their parents’ marriage and their family history with fresh eyes.  


Liane Moriarty is the author of nine novels, which have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide and been translated into over 40 languages. Big Little Lies is now an Emmy- and Golden Globe–winning HBO series, produced by and starring Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. The television adaptation of Nine Perfect Strangers premieres on Hulu in mid-August, starring Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy. Heyday Television has secured the rights to Apples Never Fall in a highly competitive bidding war.
