A bookish birthday on July 4


Rare-manuscript collector and expert and Longboat Key resident Larry Schoenberg just turned 80. He celebrated with three parties, organized by his wife, Barbara Brizdle. The first was at Aquavit in New York City, the second was on his actual birthday, July 4, at the Sarasota Yacht Club, and the third was a luncheon July 5. There were about 30 guests at the SYC party including Will Noel, director of the special collections center at the University of Pennsylvania Library and the founding director of the newly created Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies and his wife, Lynn Ransom.
