Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semiautobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation.

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition

The Ties that Bind: How Race Relations Shaped Morris County and New Jersey, 1688 – 2018: Bethel Church Exhibition
October 3, 2018 - January 5, 2019 New Jersey’s history includes enslavement of African Americans and existence of free black communities.

The “ties that bind” us together as a community can be tight enough to encourage cooperation, or too tight, leading to conflict. Explore how these ties existed and changed over time in Morris County and New Jersey and consider how those ties manifest now. Exhibit will be in the Library's F.M. Kirby Gallery  Read more...
