Henry IV at the Newberry

Thanks to author Lucy Pick for word about another French Renaissance exhibit, this one at Chicago's Newberry Library. "Henry IV of France: The Vert Galant and His Reign" will run from Tuesday, May 4 to July 5, 2010. The exhibit, which marks the 4ooth anniversary of Henry's assassination, highlights the monarch's cultural and political accomplishments and includes facsimiles of letters, a manual of horsemanship, and pamphlets on the end of the war between France and Spain and the founding of the colony of Québec. You can register for a concurrent six-session seminar about Henry and his times.
