A Valentine for Mr. Stanley: Reflections of a Man
Jerrie Marcus Smith
Allison Vose Smith

6:00 p.m. Reception, Texana Room
6:30 p.m. Lecture, Stanley Marcus Reading Room

Join us for a special Valentine’s Day event as Jerrie Marcus Smith and Allison Vose Smith, the daughter and granddaughter of Stanley Marcus, talk about their new book, Reflections of a Man: The Photographs of Stanley Marcus. While well-known as a merchant, style-maker, author, and collector, Stanley Marcus was also a very talented amateur photographer, a side of his life that only a few individuals were aware of. His extensive photographic archive, which he left with his granddaughter Allison, a professional photographer, forms the basis of this elegant and colorful book. Copies will be available for purchase. Free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Please register by email or call Betty Friedrich at 214-768-3231 to make a reservation.
