The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program is offering a remote course titled “American Bloomsbury: The Writers of America’s First Literary Community”. The class will be held remotely from May to June.
In three wooden houses in Concord, Massachusetts, during the 1850s, an American literary movement was born. Susan Cheever’s book American Bloomsbury examines these authors and thinkers, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, and Louisa May Alcott. Join instructor Angela Fasick as she guides you through this book and the associated authors.
