Masland Library Presents Grace Livingston Hill Collection
September 17, 2012
The University is opening a new museum gallery this fall in the Masland Library. The first exhibit will showcase the life and work of Grace Livingston Hill (1865-1947), who as a single mother wrote Christian novels in order to support herself, her two daughters, and mother. Hill is known for her prolific career as a fiction writer, having published 79 books in her lifetime and her legacy continues to this day with her works being reprinted.
The collection features a variety of first edition pieces, reproductions of cover art, contracts, letters, and personal pieces that tell the story of a woman who found a way to use her gift for writing to glorify God and support her family.
The exhibit is located on the 3rd floor of the Masland Library and will be on display through May 2013.
UPDATE 5/23/13: The exhibit is no longer open.
