On Tuesday, January 31, from 6:00-8:00pm, Lafayette College and the Grolier Club will host a special reception for members of the American Friends of Lafayette and New York Area Lafayette College alumni in conjunction with the exhibition on Lafayette and the Antislavery Movement.


Then (the next afternoon) on Wednesday, February 1, 1:00 to 2:00pm , we will be afforded a free lunchtime exhibition tour given by curators Olga Anna Duhl and AFL Curator, Diane Windham Shaw.  We most likely will all meet for lunch beforehand.
