Author Frances Hodgson Burnett's full manuscript of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" -- reunited for the first time in nearly a century -- will be part of an exhibition opening Monday, Nov. 15, in the Main Gallery at Princeton University's Firestone Library.
Titled "Little Lord Fauntleroy Comes to Princeton," the exhibition in the gallery's 18th-Century Window will include selected items from the Vivian Burnett Collection of Frances Hodgson Burnett, recently acquired with the support of the Friends of the Library. To launch the exhibition, Professor of English Emeritus Ulrich Knoepflmacher will give a public lecture titled "What Happened to Frances Hodgson Burnett's Harry Potter? The Rise and Fall of a 19th-Century Children's Classic" at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in the gallery.
