New York Times Covers Vanderbilt Libraries Friends Event

In April, the Belcourt Theatre was packed with 332 Friends of Vanderbilt Libraries to watch Marshall Chapman, Matraca Berg, Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle perform “Stories & Songs.” If you missed the event, more on the amazing night may be found in the May 20 New York Times article by Margaret Renkl, “Shame and Salvation in the American South.”
