Sarah Griswold, Exhibitions Project Manager, with the famous valise
The artifacts for our exhibition, Woman of Letters: Irène Némirovsky and Suite Française arrived from France recently, the first time any of them (with the exception of the manuscript of Suite Française) has ever been out of France. You can imagine our excitement in unpacking the crates and examining the powerful objects, which will help us to tell this remarkable story. In the photo above, you can see the valise which held the manuscript of Suite Française, which can be seen below.
