Friday, December 20th at 1:30 p.m. – Non-Fiction Book Club Join Reference Librarian, Cecelia Becker, for a discussion of Susan Cheever’s American Bloomsbury. Even the most devoted readers of nineteenth-century American literature often assume that the men and women behind the masterpieces were as dull and staid as the era’s static daguerreotypes. Susan Cheever’s latest work, however, brings new life to the well-known literary personages who produced such cherished works as “The Scarlet Letter, Moby-Dick, Walden,” and “Little Women.” Rendering in full color the tumultuous, often scandalous lives of these volatile and vulnerable geniuses, Cheever’s dynamic narrative reminds us that, while these literary heroes now seem secure of their spots in the canon, they were once considered avant-garde, bohemian types, at odds with the establishment. Copies of the book will be available at the Library. Please call 860-763-3501 to register for this event.
