Browse our Instagram!We have just installed a #SpineTingling exhibit: Golden Spiders & Black Orchids: a “Satisfactory” Look into the Life & Mysteries of Rex Stout. Stout, best known for his Nero Wolfe Detective novels, was an author, activist, chef, gardener, and devotee of the beard. Using the 5 Burns collections related to Rex Stout, this exhibit explores Stout’s fiction and its adaptations, his politics activism, and his hobbies.
