To herald the arrival of the national exhibit “Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible,” at the Nancy Guinn Library the Conyers Civic League hosted an open house on Saturday highlighting the traveling exhibition’s 40th and final stop. State librarian Dr. Lamar Veatch was on hand to introduce the exhibit commemorating the 400th anniversary of the printing of the bestseller. The display’s 14 graphic panels bring to life the compelling creation and the resulting cultural impact of the book over the last four centuries.
After the 17-month process to bring it here, exhibit chair Delores Baker and assistant library director Ben Carter were both in awe finally viewing the panels in Conyers. “It was amazing to open the shipping boxes,” said Carter. “It’s an engaging and informative display.”
The exhibit runs through July 12 at Nancy Guinn Library at 864 Green St., in Conyers during regular hours with several featured presentations and talks in the coming weeks. Visit conyersrockdalelibrary.org or manifoldgreatness.org for more information.
