New Wonder Woman Treasures on Display

The Library of Congress recently celebrated its extensive comic book collection with a pop-up exhibit (“Library of Awesome“) and a series of programs that culminated in a special appearance by Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman. During her appearance, Carter donated some remarkable items to the American people that will be housed in the Library’s collections. A selection of the items that were donated are on display through September 11, 2017 on the second floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building. The display, called “Celebrating Wonder Woman,” includes an original unique Wonder Woman illustration that was created for the Library by artist Cat Staggs, who did illustrations for Wonder Woman ’77, and the script of Wonder Woman (2017) that was donated by director Patty Jenkins.
