The mother of American Modernism, Georgia's life as a teacher, artist, and explorer is much talked about but rarely fully understood. Her work is a mix of fundamental beauty, an empathetic portrayal of nature, top craftsmanship, and above all "American-ness". She is an iconic figure representing the American dream with both her life and her art.
What can we learn about history from historical novels? Blaine Davies describes U.S. historical novels and explains how they help us better experience the dramatic events that shaped our nation first hand. History is a lot more interesting when you explore it from a “present” perspective when the people that were there didn’t know the outcome. Professor Davies describes a wide range of U.S. historical novels dealing with almost every aspect of U.S. history and discusses how a well written novel makes history come alive.Monday, June 1 1-3pm Blaine Davies Free to members Registrater Now for the U.S. Historical Novels Lecture Original scheduled date in catalog was canceled.
