Dive into detective novels from Francois Vidocq, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens and more at this literary exhibition at The Grolier Club

The cold-weather months are always the perfect time to cozy up with a good book, especially a juicy detective story. And, fittingly, The Grolier Club is giving the genre the spotlight it deserves with a new exhibition, Whodunit? Key Books in Detective Fiction, on view through Saturday, February 10, 2024.

The literary exhibit will feature detective novels from the 19th and early 20th century from the likes of Francois Vidocq, Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Anna Katherine Green, Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. Rare highlights on display will include the first collection of the Sherlock Holmes’ stories and Christie’s first novel, with the first appearance of Hercule Poirot. Free public programs will run in conjunction with the exhibit, including lunchtime tours, curator Q&As and more.
