Book Group – Special Guest Speaker (3/3/2015)

March 3, 7 p.m.

The MHC Club book group invites you to join Prof. Christopher Benfey for a discussion of his provocative A Summer of Hummingbirds

As the New York Times noted, Benfey likes to “keep the literary pot boiling”! A Summer of Hummingbirds: Love, Art and Scandal in the Intersecting Worlds of Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Martin Johnson Heade is a captivating synthesis of American artistic and cultural currents in the late 19th century.
