Winter 2010: Campaign Chronicle
Poet Helping Build New Library
Poet Margaret Hodgson Ellis Langford cherishes books. As a supporter of Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL), she has found a worthy cause.
“There is so much unspoken that you receive when you reach out for books themselves,” says Langford, a member of MARBL’s advisory board and the library’s campaign committee.
Langford is helping raise money for MARBL’s new home, which will serve Atlanta’s readers and open the world of books to younger generations. “We must be stewards of the heritage of books. We must fight to keep them in the culture and in the hands of students,” she says.
