The Society Library marks Edith Wharton’s 150th birthday with an exhibit that includes family portraits, books that Wharton read as a child and other artifacts from the Pulitzer Prize winner’s life. The collection highlights Wharton’s ties to NYC, where she set some of her best-known work, and to the library, to which her father and other family members belonged.
