Currently on Display: Dear Diary

The appeal of the diary is in part its promise to expose the private and secret. Reading diaries can open a tantalizing window into past lives. While diaries of the famous have their own allure, diaries of ordinary people offer a unique first-hand perspective of life in a way that official historical records rarely can. Whether you seek the extraordinary or commonplace this month's Dear Diary display has something to lure you in.
